On July 1, 2003, the Person in Charge (PIC) requirements of The School Food Safety Requirements comes into effect and completes the implementation of this food safety rule.
The PIC requirements are found in Chapter 2 and Chapter 8 section 5 of The School Food Safety Requirements. Replacement pages of Chapter 8 section 5 requirements are enclosed. Please remove the current pages in The School Food Safety Requirements and replace with these revised pages.
The PIC applies to public schools, private schools, and residential child care institutions sponsoring the National School Lunch and/or School Breakfast Programs and competitive food sales vendors in such organizations.
The responsibilities of the PIC may be divided among different employees as appropriate for job classification. If such a division of responsibility occurs, each person must know who is responsible for what part of the requirements.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your County Specialist .
