Is your school or district due for a USDA Administrative Review (audit) this year? As you know, these administrative reviews are a comprehensive evaluation of school meal programs in school food authorities (SFAs) participating in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. Your state agencies are required to review each program compliance with school meal program requirements, every 3-5 years depending on your state. 

Using NutriStudents K-12 can help you pass your review with flying colors. How? If you use just one NutriStudents K-12 menu week each month, you can take comfort in knowing you have a completely USDA-compliant menu to provide to the state ready for your review. Every complete NutriStudents K-12 lunch menu week meets all the nutritional requirements of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, while incorporating flavorful entrees and delicious sides that students love. 

In addition to access to fully compliant menu weeks, NutriStudents K-12 also supports your successful audit with:

    • CN labels and product formulation statements
    • Specific manufacturers' online product formulation statements
