Cafeteria Fund Guidance

Provides School Food Authorities (SFA) with information and instructions pertaining to federal and State statutes and regulations that govern school cafeteria funds.

Federal Regulations

The Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations (7 CFR) governs nonprofit school food service cafeteria accounts. School food authorities participating in the National School Lunch (NSLP), School Breakfast (SBP), and Special Milk (SMP) Programs must establish a nonprofit school food service (cafeteria fund/account) [7 CFR 210.9(b)(1)]. All federal, State, and local revenues, payments, and program reimbursement must be deposited into the cafeteria account and are to be used solely for the operation and improvement of this service [7 CFR 210.14]. In addition, school nutrition program sponsors must comply with State and federal limitations on the use of cafeteria funds [7 CFR 210.9(b)(1)].
Public school districts and county offices of education that participate only in the State Meal Program or that do not participate in any reimbursable meal program still must observe all State laws (e.g., EC and PCC) relating to the operation of a food service program and the use of school food service program revenues. Food services include the preparation and service of regular and incidental meals, lunches, milk, and/or snacks in connection with school (or after school) activities, and food delivery.
Expenditures from the cafeteria fund/account are governed by both federal and State laws, specifically:
CFR parts 210, 220, 3015, 3016, and 3019
CFR parts 225 and 230 (formerly Office of Management and Budgets Circulars A-87 and A-122 respectively)

Commissioner Pryor, can you tell us which laws are “laws” and which are “bureaucratic technicalities”?

It looked pretty simple.   Governor Malloy and his Commissioner of Education, Stefan Pryor, wrote up a special law to allow Paul Vallas to serve as Bridgeport’s superintendent of schools, despite the fact that Vallas wasn’t certified to hold the position nor has he ever taken an education course.
