Updates and Announcements

Free and Reduced Price and/or Special Milk Program - Public Release

Annually, school food authorities (SFAs) are required to provide a public release of the Free and Reduced Price Meals Policy and/or the Special Milk Program Policy that is published at the district level.  To meet this annual requirement for Colorado SFAs, the CDE Office of School Nutrition will be publishing a state-wide public release on June 30, 2016.   This state-wide public release will include all sites participating in the National School Lunch Program and/or the Special Milk Program. As a best practice, Colorado SFAs can publish the public release locally, but this will no longer be required.
