Important Information about school year 2020-21 claims

Sponsors that choose to operate the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through December 31, 2020 will enter claims under SFSP (red tile). Claims for June – September will be sponsor-level. Site-level claiming will resume in October and for all future months.

The USDA has confirmed that meals served at the start of school year can be retroactively claimed as SFSP meals. If an August SFSP claim has already been submitted, these claims will need to be amended to include the remaining August meals served. If August SBP/NSLP claims have already been submitted, CDE will deny the SBP/NSLP claim and the meals will then need to be claimed under SFSP accordingly.  

Sponsors that choose to continue operating the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program will continue to submit claims under School Nutrition Programs (blue tile).

For claim questions, contact free&andreducedpriceschoolmeals@cde.state.co.us. 

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender. The USDA Nondiscrimination Statement and the procedures for filing a complaint can be found online here.
