New Non-Discrimination Statement/Justice For All posters

Greetings CACFP Sponsors,

The three attachments explain we have a new Non-Discrimination Statement and Justice for All poster.  USDA has stated that sponsors should continue using the same Justice for All posters that you have currently until new posters are available.  The CACFP sponsor's form announcement indicates that USDA is working on printing new posters, but new posters may not be available until sometime next year.  FNB will order new posters when we hear officially that they are available. 

Sponsors should update their website with the new Non-Discrimination Statement (below) by August 5th  (90 days from the release of the notice). Other materials that require the statement can be updated with the new Non-Discrimination Statement as you are able to.  It is fine for sponsors to continue using printed material with the old statement until your supply is used up.  If sponsors are printing any items where the Non-Discrimination Statement is required, and there is not enough room for the entire statement, the shortened version "USDA is an equal opportunity provider" can still be used instead.  

Here is the new Non-Discrimination statement (located at:  Nondiscrimination Statement | Food and Nutrition Service (

In accordance with federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.

Program information may be made available in languages other than English. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication to obtain program information (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language), should contact the responsible state or local agency that administers the program or USDA’s TARGET Center at (202) 720-2600 (voice and TTY) or contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339.
