Error Codes 79-87

Error 79

The Same Dinner was Served as Lunch During the Given Day

This error can be issued if a dinner matches a lunch in a day to encourage diversity of offered foods. This error only looks at the food served—not the individual children served. This means that it still generates even if the children present at Dinner are completely different from those served at Lunch. Error 165 applies on a child-by-child basis.

This error warns or disallows the children who attended the dinner and the lunch.

Error 80

The Same Snack was Served More than Once in a Day

This error can be issued if the same snack was served to the same children more than once in a day. This error only looks at the food served—not the individual children served. Error 166 applies on a child-by-child basis.

This error warns or disallows the children who were served the same snack.

Error 81

The School/Census Poverty Percentage is Insufficient to Classify the Provider as Tier 1 for all Meals Served on Given Date(s)

A Tier 1 provider must have Tier 1 eligibility dates for Income Eligibility, School Area, or Census Area. These dates must encompass the current meal date. Otherwise, the meal will be reimbursed at a Tier 2 or Mixed Tier rate.

However, Minute Menu HX can be configure to look at multiple factors when determining provider tiering. In this case, if a provivder is Tier 1 by School or Census data, the system also examines the poverty percentage of the School or Census area. If that percentage is less than 50%, the provider is still processed at a Tier 2 or Mixed Tier rate, even if their dates do encompass the existing meal date. Some sponsors like to apply this extra level of checking.

If you see this error, you can check the poverty percentage for either the School or Census area in the Provider Information Tiering tab.

Error 82

Provider's Tier 1 Eligibility Dates are Not Valid on Given Date(s)

A Tier 1 provider must have Tier 1 eligibility dates for Income Eligibility, School Area, or Census Area. These dates must encompass the current meal date. Otherwise, the meal will be reimbursed at a Tier 2 or Mixed Tier rate.

This error is generated and the provider does not receive Tier 1 reimbursement if you have not entered a valid ending and start date in the Provider Information Tiering tab for any of the three qualifying reasons (income, census, school district).

Error 83

Child Exceeds 2 Meals & a Snack or 2 Snacks & a Meal Limit

This error is generated if a child is claimed for more than two (2) meals and one (1) snack or two (2) snacks and one (1) meal. When this error is generated, the meals are disallowed in a way that maximizes the provider's reimbursement: Snacks are disallowed before meals, and Breakfast is disallowed before Lunch or Dinner.

Some agencies encourage providers to claim all children at all meals to keep a more accurate picture of attendance and to help Providers track all their meals served for tax purposes. If your agency does this, you may see this error in large numbers.

Error 84

Provider is not Approved for Given Meal Serving

You can configure Minute Menu HX to allow providers to accurately record split shifts/servings (when a meal is served twice in a given day to two different groups of children). This is controlled by the setting you select in the Highest Meal Shift Tracked drop-down menu in the Provider Information window.

This error is generated when a provider attempts to claim a second serving of a given meal, but they are only approved for one (1) serving. It can ignore, warn, or disallow the additional shifts.

Error 85

Provider Over Capacity, but Approved for Single Column Serving Overlap on Scannable Form. Verify Provider Capacity

Minute Menu HX handles split-shift checking in two ways: Providers mark a first and second shift on scannable forms/KidKare independently, or they mark all children in capacity at both shifts, but mark only a single serving. The latter case is referred to as a single-column overlap. You must set up Overlap Capacity in the Provider Information Other tab for each split-shift meal.

This error is generated when a provider is over their Overlap Capacity. This error is always a warning.

Error 86

Provider Over Capacity, but Waiver is in Effect. Verify Capacity with Waiver

Certain states allow capacity waivers for a specific time period. This error is generated if a provider is over capacity, but one of these waivers is in effect. All over capacity errors will be allowed.

You can find the provider's current waiver status in the Provider Information Licensing tab.

Error 87

Related Children are the Only Children Served in Given Meal Serving(s) on a Holiday

The provider's own children can never be the only children present during a meal. In some states, this rule is taken further on holidays. This error is generated if the only children served are the provider's own children or related non-resident children, the meal is disallowed as well. It warns or disallows all children at the meal.
