  • Allocations are based on the choices made from the Recipient Agency's annual pre-order survey.
  • Commodity allocations will be posted on a weekly basis from September through April during the school year.
  • Items that are back ordered will be filled when they become available.

Step 3Select the appropriate program year


Step 4Select the Allocations tab on the R/A Summary page to view the requested allocation.


Step 5Cross-reference your allocations with your pre-order survey to know which items have been received and which items still need to be allocated.


Any or all of the following reasons may apply as reasons for not receiving a weekly allocation in a particular month:

  • Reason #1 - The products allocated were not items requested on your pre-order survey.
  • Reason #2 - All items requested on the survey have been received thus far and are up to date.
  • Reason #3 - The item has not arrived at the state contracted warehouse for a particular month.
  • Reason #4 - Allocations have ended for the school year.
  • Bonus foods are considered those over and above entitlement foods. They are offered periodically, but only as they become available through agricultural surpluses.  They are then offered to states on a fair-share basis, and do not count against a state’s regular entitlement dollars.
