New Competitive Foods Rules Effective July 1, 2014

In recording setting time, USDA published interim final regulations governing all food service on school campuses, including out side of school cafeterias and by organizations other than the school food authority (boosters clubs, athletic departments, etc).  USDA was in a rush to make sure the regulation are implemented as soon as possible, as authorizing legislation required a minimum of one full school year before the regs could be implemented.  The interim status simply means that USDA will accept comments about the final reg and could potential make further changes.
