Policy Memo SP 20-2015 allows KDE/SCN to grant an exemption from the regulatory whole grain-rich requirement in the meal programs, in school years 2014-15 and 2015-16 to a school food authority that demonstrates a hardship in procuring compliant whole grain-rich products that are acceptable to students. SFAs that are approved for an exemption from the current whole grain-rich requirement must continue, at a minimum, to meet the whole grain-rich requirement that was in effect for SY 2013-14. Please complete the form for exemption request consideration to Sandy Wagner at Sandra.firstname.lastname@example.org. KDE/SCN is committed to working with SFAs as they make these important changes in their school meals.
