USDA Memo – Certification of Compliance with New Meal Patterns

On July 17, 2013 USDA released a memo providing information and updated materials to support the certification process set forth in the interim rule. The lunch tools remain unchanged, and this addresses the breakfast meal pattern for SY 2013 – SY 2014. State agencies are reminded to distribute this memorandum and attachments to program operators immediately. School Food Authorities should contact their State agencies for additional information.
