CACFP Disaster Milk and Meal Flexibility Request

This request form is strictly for CACFP facilities that are under the sponsorship of Georgia Nutritional Services, Inc. 

DECAL state-level flexibility will only be granted to those impacted organizations, sites, or individuals located in a state in which a “State of Emergency” has been declared. Effective March 15, 2020, Governor Kemp declared a State of Emergency in Georgia.  We recognize that due to scarcity of resources, facilities are having difficulty finding meal components such as milk and whole grain rich components.  If you are not able to reasonably locate and purchase any meal components, please complete the form below.


FOOD COMPONENT- You may make requests for the following:
- Services without milk or an alternate form of milk (e.g., canned or dry)
- Special variations in menu planning and meal pattern (requires permission from USDA)

MEAL SERVICE - You may request the following:
- Temporary changes in the time of meal service

Complete the form below for GNSI to submit your request to DECAL. If we have further questions, we will contact you immediately for further guidance.

Once submitted, you will have CONDITIONAL permission to make the substitution; however, you will not be reimbursed for meals if DECAL or USDA-FNS reject your request.

If you have any questions, contact your GNSI consultant or anyone in our office.  Additional COVID19 resources available below form.
