Approve the Charter School Food Service Agreement Between the Bridge Prep Academy of Riverview and the School Board of Hillsborough County, Florida
Student Nutrition Services (SNS) has been asked to provide meal service to the Bridge Prep Academy of Riverview (Academy) for the 2017/18 school year under the district's sponsorship of the National School Lunch Program.

Under the agreement, SNS is responsible for approving free and reduced price meal applications, furnishing food and supplies for meal services, and providing technical assistance.  The Academy is responsible for adhering to meal accountability procedures, serving correct menu items, and maintaining a clean and safe environment for the service of food.

The meals served will be included as part of the SNS monthly federal reimbursement claim.  The Academy will be invoiced for student "full pay" meals, adult meals, emergency meals, and any other meals that can not be claimed as free or reduced price.

The term of the agreement is from August 7, 2017, through May 25, 2018.
• Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health
Meals served to students approved for free or reduced price meals are claimed for reimbursement on the SNS monthly claim form submitted to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.  The Academy is fiscally responsible for meals served to paid students, and for extra meals ordered and delivered, but not served.  Projected revenue will be approximately $100,000 over expenses.
