The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 created new food safety standards for schools participating in the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Program.
The Office of Food Protection assists schools in meeting the federal requirements. We have established criteria for third-party cafeteria inspection firms to conduct inspections, approve vendors who meet those criteria, and are committed to continuously monitoring the work of third-party auditors to ensure that high quality audits are conducted in compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations. We also provide an online tool to view inspection reports.
