Recommendation #57 To: North Monterey County Unified School District

With regard to nonprogram foods, Local Education Agencies should determine whether they are generating at least the minimum required amount of nonprogram foods revenues and, if they are not, make the adjustments necessary to generate in fiscal year 2014-15 the amount of nonprogram foods revenues needed to meet federal requirements.

1-Year Agency Response

Since July 1, 2014 the North Monterey County USD Business office set up the Child Nutrition Budget to include a Resource #6000 Enterprise to track all income accrued and expenses incurred of all non-program coast. Resource #6000 Enterprise was added to the following objects:

8634- Food Service Sales. 4700- Food Purchases. The Child Nutrition Department calculated the non-program Food Revenues. The calculations revealed our department was charging the correct pricing for the ala carte/catering program. The calculations documented our revenue exceeded the minimum required amount by $2457.00. A copy of our calculation will be sent to Jerry Lewis.
