Whole Grain Rich Exemptions

USDA memo SP 32-2017 allows state agencies to extend exemptions of whole grain-rich (WGR) requirements to school food authorities (SFAs) demonstrating hardship in procuring compliant WGR products that are acceptable to students through school year 2017-2018. SFAs must submit this form and supporting documentation (e.g. photos, meal count records, student survey, etc.) to request an exemption. Approvals are valid through school year 2017-2018 and only granted for specific products listed. Exemptions approved in and prior to school year 2016-2017 do not require re-approval for school year 2017-2018. If you experience difficulty with other whole grain-rich products during the school year, please submit an additional form listing all new enriched products the SFA intends to use.

Please list all products intended for use.

Please attach supporting product documentation demonstrating hardship for each item listed:
