Dear Parents and Guardians of the Millbrae School District:
There are many regulations that a school district must comply with in our Food Services Program. One particular regulation that has affected our pricing is as follows:
Section 206 of the HHFKA, is codified under Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 210.14(f) of the Interim Rule. The Interim Rule:
- Requires School Food Authorities (SFA) to ensure that their nonprogram food revenues are equal to or greater than their nonprogram food costs. For the purpose of this provision, nonprogram food costs do not include labor or other expenses. All revenue from the sale of nonprogram foods accrues to the nonprofit school food service account of the SFA.
In accordance with the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, we were required to analyze all food items sold in the Millbrae School District. The following is part of the legislation that requires us to keep our pricing at a certain level to ensure that the snack sales are at the appropriate pricing.
We have reviewed all of our pricing for the Millbrae School District and have increased our items appropriately. Items were increased to the nearest quarter for speed of service, and simplicity for cash handling. This is our first price increase since 2011.
Attached you will find the new pricing for all snack items sold at both Taylor Middle and the Elementary Schools.
Effective October 14, 2014 we are changing the milk price back to $0.50 and increasing the price of two snack items to accommodate this change.
