  • SSO Age/Grade Portion Size Waiver
  • Summer Nutrition Cost Report
    • SFAs in which fifty (50) percent or more of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals are required to provide a summer nutrition program and must report program costs.
      SFAs must submit their district’s summer operating costs at the end of summer into TX-UNPS (even if the cost is $0). This information is known as the “Summer Cost Report” and be found in TX-UNPS by accessing the School Nutrition Programs module, under the Applications screen, click on Summer Nutrition Program Costs link. If the SFA partnered or collaborated with another SFA or entity, and did not incur any costs, you must still report your district’s summer operating costs by entering the operating cost as .01 in TX-UNPS.
