Assembly Bill 95 – Amends Existing Law Relating To Pupil Nutrition

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Dec 06, 2023

Existing law requires school districts and county superintendent of schools that maintain kindergarten or any of the grades 1-12 to provide two school meals free of charge during each school day to any pupil requesting a meal without consideration of the pupil’s eligibility for a federally funded fee or reduced-price meal.  The meals must be nutritiously adequate meals that qualify for federal reimbursement.  Schools are authorized to sell food other than meals reimbursed by federal nutrition program during specified periods of time, but only if the food sold meets dietary guidelines appropriate for each grade level.

AB 95 provides that existing law should not be construed to prohibit a school from selling to a pupil an entrée from an additional nutritiously adequate meal that qualifies for federal reimbursement from the save meal service, after the pupil has been provided a school meal that complies with federal nutrition programs.

(AB 95 amends Sections 49431 and 49431.2 of the Education Code.)
