Nondiscrimination Statement

USDA Nondiscrimination Statement and Complaint Information for School Nutrition Programs 

Please note: the statement on the And Justice for All poster is different than the non-discrimination statement used on program materials.  The And Justice for All posters serve as the Equal Opportunity Policy notice; while the nondiscrimination statement notifies the public of the policy not to discriminate.


And Justice for All Posters  

The CDE School Nutrition Unit received notice that the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is not issuing And Justice for All posters and they are currently unavailable. The School Nutrition Unit requests that SFAs and sponsors display the posters they currently have in a safe location. In the interim, SFAs and sponsors will not be penalized during a review for not having the posters as they are unavailable at this time.
