Signage must be posted in a visible area near the meal service line that shows students how to select a reimbursable meal. School Food Authorities using Offer vs Serve (OVS) must include the required wording to select at least 1/2 cup of fruit, vegetable, or a combination. Signage is not required for field trips, Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC), or other venues where it may be problematic. However, other methods should be used to inform students of their choices for the meal.
