Verification Packets

Wednesday, September 1, 2010, 10:12 am

School lunch applications require annual verfication. An instruction packet will be sent to your district by School Nutrition Programs on September 1st. The packet includes information that will help you verify the income of a a select group of applications starting October 1st.

To make the process easier, work now to organize meal applications into four groups of eligibility approval -- direct certified, eligible for free based on income or case number, eligible for reduced price and denied.  Reduce the number of applications to verify by directly certifying families receiving SNAP (food stamps.)

You will have until November 15th to complete the verification of income on selected applications.  Please be diligent with follow-up by documenting contact with the family and doing your best to achieve a 100% response rate.
