This page is meant to assist recipient agencies/processors with diverting USDA Foods for further processing. USDA Foods processed end products allow recipient agencies the flexibility to purchase what they want and when that meets the needs of their students.

Covid-19 Update for Grab-N-Go Feeding:

Many recipient agencies are operating under alternating feeding options in response to Covid-19. ODE has compiled a list of available Processor Grab-N-Go end products that are easier to utilize during this disruption. Recipient agencies can utilize their processor inventory balances with processors and reduce food cost by ordering these products. Please contact the appropriate processor/broker to order.

List of Grab-N-Go end products


Summary End Product Data Schedules (SEPDS)

SEPDS are used by recipient agencies to identify what food product to divert to what processor and diverted food value (DFV). Once the proper planning and forecasting has been completed, recipient agencies use this information to place orders in the WBSCM system to divert USDA pounds to a processor.


Processor Commodity Calculators

Commodity calculators are used by recipient agencies to plan and place orders with processors. For assistance with the calculators, recipient agencies will need to contact the individual processor. A competitive procurement is still required prior to placing order with processor.

Service Fees

The service fee for SY 2019-20 will be $.11 per lb for all Diversion/Processing pounds (same as Direct Delivery). This fee covers administration of the USDA Foods processing program. Fees are taken from claims for reimbursement. To see fees associated with USDA Foods, please access CNPweb. Click on reports, then click invoice details.

PLEASE NOTE: ODE CNP not only covers some USDA FDP administration costs, but it also applies annually for USDA funds to refund costs incurred to Recipient Agencies. Please pay attention to memos and announcements for this information. These funds significantly reduce the cost of the program.
