Health Inspections Resources

Published: 5/9/2024 12:08 PM

​​​​​​​​​​​This web page provides resources for SFSP sponsors and health departments for health inspections of SFSP sites.​​​​​​​​​​​


Thanks to a contract between the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) and the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), ALL health departments are eligible to receive reimbursements for health inspections of Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) summer feeding sites. 
Per USDA, inspections are to be focused on non-school sites that have not had a completed inspection in the last 9 months. SFSP site sponsors should already be notifying their local Health Departments of sites and Health Departments should already be completing inspections of the non-school sites, leaving only the required inspection forms and invoices to be submitted to KDE in order to receive reimbursement for the inspections. 
The USDA places a total funding limit for the amount of reimbursements allocated to Kentucky. In order to utilize the full funding allotted to Kentucky, KDE has elected to not set a defined reimbursement rate per health inspection. The rate per inspection will be determined at the end of the summer based on the total number of sites inspected. CHFS will distribute all funds at the end of the summer feeding season. 
4 Easy Steps for Reimbursement
1. Print the Inspection Forms. 
2. Review the list of approved sites and their operational times via the SFSP Current Site List below. The list of approved sites will be updated at a minimum of weekly throughout the summer as sites are added or changed. 
3. Perform health inspections of non-school sites that have not been inspected in the last 9 months.
4. Submit completed forms and invoices to KDE. Inspection Forms and associated invoice should be sent monthly to KDE.  Please send all completed forms and invoices to:
      Kentucky Department of Education
      Division of School and Community Nutrition
      300 Sower Blvd.
      Frankfort, KY 40601
