The purpose of this memo is to clarify how an eligible School Food Authority (SFA) may utilize USDA Food Entitlement funds to offset some of the cost of preparing National School Lunch Program (NSLP) reimbursable meals (Breakfasts, Lunches and Afterschool Snacks). This is made possible by using a SFAs allocated entitlement funding to purchase and receive quality USDA Food for use in the preparation of meals. An SFA would otherwise have to pay full commercial prices for all food from other sources as part of its’ nonprofit school food service. The savings is the total value of all USDA Food received by the SFA.
