The U.S. government continues to be under a partial shutdown with most of the USDA staff on furlough and the USDA website remains down. As posted last week, USDA released the following memo regarding reimbursements for the school nutrition programs which states that school food authorities and other program operators would receive reimbursement for meals served prior to October 1, 2013. For meals currently being served, there is limited carryover funding available to support October meal service. SNA encourages our members to contact their State Agencies with Child Nutrition oversight for any questions regarding the limited carryover funding. SNA will continue to monitor the situation and will keep members updated as information is available.
