The Keep Kids Fed Act of 2022 was signed into law on June 25 and provides additional support and resources to help Child Nutrition Program operators continue to serve healthy meals to children this summer and provide support to schools for the coming school year.

  • Provides temporary additional reimbursements of:
    • 40 cents per lunch served through the National School Lunch Program
    • 15 cents per breakfast served through the School Breakfast Program

Final reimbursement rates for School Year 2022-23 will be released in July and will include the temporary additional reimbursements as part of the total reimbursement for each meal.

  • Sponsors may request a meal pattern waiver from CDE’s School Nutrition Unit if they are affected by supply chain disruptions. Sponsors will not incur fiscal action for meals served that do not meet meal pattern requirements when an approved waiver is in place.
