Best Practices for School Food Authorities
There are many resources available on how to implement and administer a successful AMP program. Here are a few:
* USDA allows AMP meals to be served to students participating in competitive athletics as long as the meal service is part of an overarching afterschool enrichment program. Please note, however, that the competitive sports themselves will not meet the educational and enrichment activity requirement to make a site eligible to participate. There must be other educational and enrichment programming taking place. There is no requirement that the afterschool programs track the specific activities in which the children participate or document that the children participated in the offered activities. As long as appropriate educational or enrichment activities are provided, the site is eligible to serve meals to the children that attend the overarching program.
