Food Service Management Company (FSMC)

Food Service Management Company (FSMC)

Food Service Management Company
A commercial enterprise or non-profit organization (including a SFA) that provides meals and manages any or all aspects of school food service operations are considered Food Service Management Companies (FSMCs) and should not be confused with services requiring the use of Vendor or Joint Agreements.

 

With school authorization and approval an FSMC may manage certain areas of the schools’ food services including:

 
  • “Point of Service” – Point of Service means that point in the food service operation where a determination can accurately be made that a reimbursable free, reduced price or paid lunch has been served to an eligible child,
  • claims counting, and
  • submission of claims for reimbursement.
  • Schools that choose to contract with a FSMC must follow the specific guidelines/requirements and use the required templates.
