SCHOOL FOOD AUTHORITY ON-SITE REVIEW CHECKLIST
ASSESSMENT OF THE MEAL COUNTING AND CLAIMING SYSTEM AND
READILY OBSERVABLE GENERAL AREAS FOR THE SBP AND NSLP
According to 7 CFR 210.8(a)(1) and 7 CFR 220.11(d)(1), every school year, prior to February 1, each
School Food Authority (SFA) with more than one school (as defined by 7 CFR Part 210.2 to include
Residential Child Care Institutions (RCCIs)) must perform no less than one on-site review of the meal
counting and claiming system and the readily observable general areas of review identified under
7 CFR 210.18(h) in each school operating the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and 50% of schools
operating the School Breakfast Program (SBP) under its jurisdiction.
Each on-site review must ensure the school’s claim is based on the counting and claiming system, as
implemented, and yields the actual number of reimbursable free, reduced price, and paid meals,
respectively, served for each day of operation.
If the review discloses problems with a school’s meal counting and claiming procedures or general review
areas, the SFA must ensure that the school implements corrective action, and within 45 days of the review,
conduct a follow-up on-site review to determine that the corrective action resolved the problems.
