Meals Served on the Weekend May Be Reimbursable

Meals served on the weekend may be reimbursable if the activity is an integral part of the curriculum or an actual extension of the local educational program, and not simply a school-affiliated extracurricular event, activity or one-time event, such as football, band and choral activity.  The decision as to whether an activity is an integral part of or extension of the curriculum is to be made by the state education agency. Please allow two to three weeks prior to the start of the program to process paperwork with the state. In all cases, care must be taken to ensure that accurate records are maintained.

Once your program is approved, your on-site food service staff will be in touch with you to discuss the details to assure the meals are served in compliance with the Federal guidelines.
