Public Notification – National School Lunch Program

Date: November 16, 2020

The West Virginia Department of Education is submitting waiver requests to the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to extend the current five-year Administrative Review cycle to a six-year review cycle and align procurement reviews to mirror the administrative review cycle. Further, WVDE seeks to extend the review cycle requirements for Food Service Management Companies. Waivers are being sought as most program sponsors eligible for these reviews are operating alternative Child Nutrition Programs due to the pandemic. (See: 7 CFR 210.18(c); 7 CFR 210.19(a)(5) ).
