Healthy Food Certification

Section 10-215f of the Connecticut General Statutes requires that each board of education or governing authority for all public schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (including the Connecticut Technical High School System, charter schools, interdistrict magnet schools and endowed academies) must certify annually to the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) whether the district will follow the Connecticut Nutrition Standards for all foods sold to students separately from reimbursable school meals.
The Connecticut Nutrition Standards apply to all sources of food sales on school premises at all times including, but not limited to, school stores, vending machines, school cafeterias and any fundraising activities on school premises. Districts that opt to implement healthy food certification (HFC) receive an additional 10 cents per lunch, based on the total number of reimbursable lunches (paid, free and reduced) served in the district in the prior school year.
