SY2022-23 Reimbursement Rates Announced


On July 22, 2022, USDA announced annual adjustments for the 2022-23 School Year (SY) reimbursement rates for the National School Lunch Program, Special Milk, School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Effective July 1, 2022, the reimbursement schools receive for each meal served will increase by approximately $0.68 per free/reduced-price lunch and $0.32 per free/reduced price breakfast.  

The annual adjustment increase is higher this year, due to temporary funding authorized under the Keep Kids Fed Act of 2022, which provided an additional 40 cents for each NSLP lunch served, and an additional 15 cents for each breakfast. These additional reimbursement amounts shall only be available for the school year beginning July 1, 2022 and ending on June 30, 2023. For more information, see the Temporary Reimbursement Payment Chart in the Federal Register notice and read USDA’s press release.
