School Lunch Tray

The School Lunch Tray (SLT) is the Connecticut State Department of Education's (CSDE) weekly e-newsletter for Connecticut sponsors of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) school nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Afterschool Snack Program (ASP) of the NSLP, Seamless Summer Option (SSO) of the NSLP, and Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP). The SLT provides important guidance and resources for complying with the federal and state requirements. It also identifies deadlines for completing required activities and submitting required reports.

Connecticut sponsors of the school nutrition programs may sign up to receive the weekly SLT
e-newsletter by contacting their school nutrition team member.
