December 2, 2022 - Prior to Summer 2023, regulations stipulated that CEs visit each site within the first week of operation unless waived by TDA. Per Final Rule, Streamlining Program Requirements and Improving Integrity in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), published September 19, 2022, and going into effect Summer 2023, the site visit requirements have changed.

All CEs are required to visit any new site or a site with previous operational issues in the prior year within the first two weeks of operation. CEs are still required to conduct a full review of food service operations at each site within the first four weeks of operation, and thereafter, maintain a reasonable level of site monitoring. The final rule allows the food service review to occur at the same time as the site visit during the first two weeks of operation.
