Collection of Race and Ethnicity Data for Meal Programs 

The  purpose for collecting race and ethnicity data is to determine how effectively School Meal Programs are reaching potentially eligible students. Provision of this data is voluntary. Responses are kept confidential, and responses have no effect on eligibility. The USDA has determined that making a judgement of race or ethnicity  based on appearance is not reliable. It is no longer allowable for school personnel to use visual observation to identify race and ethnicity
