Check district’s menu certification and performance-based reimbursement

Maine currently has 109 districts whose menus have been certified, putting the state at a little over 50 percent complete. Performance-based certification not only ensures that your district is meeting the mandatory, new, healthier meal pattern, but also gives the district an additional six-cents per reimbursable lunch claimed. For some districts, this can mean thousands of additional dollars for the program each year.

Please review the list of districts that have not contacted the Maine Child Nutrition Services office. If your district is listed, please send Jessica McGovern the name of a contact that can work on the certification, as well as a copy of your district’s April or May breakfast and lunch menus.

You may contact Jessica via email at, via phone at (207) 624-6726, or via fax (207) 624-6841.
