Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 – Public Law 111-26

On December 13, 2010, the President signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010 (Public Law 111-296). The Act makes many important improvements to the Child Nutrition Programs that serve millions of children across our country each day.

As information becomes available on the implementation of this Act, ISBE will provide to our sponsors through this website, our newsletters, webinars, and training opportunities. Please watch for more information in the near future.

While many of the provisions within the Act have an effective date of October 1, 2010, specific guidelines will be forthcoming from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in the next several months. We will provide ample notice and direction, prior to requiring program compliance.
