  4. 4. Highlights of the New Regulations• Effective July 1, 2011, flavored milk can no longer be 1%, it must now be skim milk• July 2011 - USDA will issue guidance on indirect costs such as water, gas & electricity• SY 2012/13 new meal planning system• Effective July 1, 2011, “Equity in Meal Pricing” goes into effect
  5. 5. Impact on MISD New Milk Regulations• Because flavored skim milk was not on our bid a new milk bid had to be solicited• Milk costs increased by $.02 per carton• Net impact on MISD based on current year usage is $65,337.00
  6. 6. Impact on MISD Indirect Costs• It is unclear at this time the impact this regulation will have on the district or when the regulation must be implemented• Originally due June 13, release date has now been pushed to July 10
  7. 7. Impact on MISD New Menu Planning System• Regulations have been proposed but not approved yet• A comment period has just recently closed• Proposed new regulations would make food costs and labor increase dramatically• Proposed increase in USDA funding to cover increased costs is $.06 per meal

  9. 9. Impact on MISD New Meal Planning System• Limitations on “starchy” vegetables• Begin elimination of processed foods• Implementation of more “scratch cooked” foods (aka: additional labor costs)• Proposed breakfast regulations could cost us over $375,000 in additional food• Final ruling due out next school year
  10. 10. Impact on MISD Equity in Meal Pricing• Requires districts to start raising the price of meals for paid students to eventually be the same as the USDA reimbursement for a free student meal• Current free reimbursement is $2.72• Equity to be met incrementally over several years through annual price increases
