SFSP Menus for Child Nutrition Programs

NutriStudents K-12 is pleased to offer schools and other child nutrition program operators free menu weeks for the Summer Food Service Program.

The 4-week (5 days each) menu below is fully compliant with the USDA's Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) guidelines. The 2 weeks of hot and 2 weeks of cold meals* will accommodate cafeteria-served, grab-and-go or delivered meals. Our menus for the Seamless Summer Option can also be used for programs participating in the SFSP, providing 6 total weeks of menus. Because the SFSP nutritional requirements are based on individual days versus full weeks, you can pick and choose any of the meals you prefer, in any order. (This USDA guidelines does not apply to SSO menus.) See the chart at the bottom of this page for more detail on the meal pattern requirements.

You can be assured your meals meet the USDA's required meal patterns by following these menu weeks precisely. Be sure to confirm your state's requirements with your state's authorizing agency. NutriStudents K-12 cannot verify or assure compliance when substitutions are made. 

Please be advised that NutriStudents K-12 only provides Administrative Review support services to subscribed customers/licensees that may choose to use these menus for summer meal programs.
