National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Title: Agricultural Labor Survey— Substantive Change. OMB Control Number: 0535–0109. Summary of Collection: General authority for these data collection activities is granted under U.S. Code Title 7, Section 2204 which specifies that ‘‘The Secretary of Agriculture shall procure and preserve all information concerning agriculture which he can obtain . . . by the collection of statistics . . .’’. The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is to provide data users with timely and reliable agricultural production and economic statistics, as well as environmental and specialty agricultural related statistics. To accomplish this objective, NASS relies on the use of diverse surveys that show changes within the farming industry over time. This is a request to make a substantive change to the currently approved Agricultural Labor docket. In this substantive change, NASS will reduce the sample size and reduce the number of questions being asked. Previously, NASS conducted the Agricultural Labor Survey under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Recently, the DOL cut off funding of the Labor survey, warranting this reduction in sample size and cut in the number of questions asked. NASS will publish the results of the survey, but the publication will resemble the publication that was published on Nov. 15, 2018. The questions that will be removed from the questionnaire are those referencing base wages, base hours worked, overtime wages, overtime hours worked, and bonus wages. NASS will still collect gross wages and total hours worked. Need and Use of the Information: Agricultural labor statistics are an integral part of the primary function of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), which is the collection, processing, and dissemination of current State, regional, and national agricultural statistics. Wage rate estimates have been published since 1866 and U.S. farm employment estimates have been published since 1910. Description of Respondents: Farms and Ranches. Number of Respondents: 18,050.

National Average Minimum Value of Donated Foods for the Period July 1, 2021 Through June 30, 2022 Levi S. Harrell, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer. This notice implements mandatory provisions of sections 6(c) and 17(h)(1)(B) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (the Act) (42 U.S.C. 1755(c) and 1766(h)(1)(B)). Section 6(c)(1)(A) of the Act establishes the national average value of donated food assistance to be given to States for each lunch served in the NSLP at 11.00 cents per meal. Pursuant to section 6(c)(1)(B), this amount is subject to annual adjustments on July 1 of each year to reflect changes in a three-month average value of the Producer Price Index for Foods Used in Schools and Institutions for March, April, and May each year (Price Index). Section 17(h)(1)(B) of the Act provides that the same value of donated foods (or cash in lieu of donated foods) for school lunches shall also be established for lunches and suppers served in the CACFP. Notice is hereby given that the national average minimum value of donated foods, or cash in lieu thereof, per lunch under the NSLP (7 CFR part 210) and per lunch and supper under the CACFP (7 CFR part 226) shall be 26.00 cents for the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. The Price Index is computed using five major food components in the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index (cereal and bakery products; meats, poultry, and fish; dairy; processed fruits and vegetables; and fats and oils). Each component is weighted using the relative weight as determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The value of food assistance is adjusted each July 1 by the annual percentage change in a three-month average value of the Price Index for March, April, and May each year. The three-month average of the Price Index increased by 6.47 percent from 213.45 for March, April, and May of 2020, as previously published in the Federal Register, to 227.26 for the same three months in 2021. When computed on the basis of unrounded data and rounded to the nearest one-quarter cent, the resulting national average for the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 will be 26.00 cents per meal. This is an increase of one-and-a-half cents from the school year 2021 (July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021) rate. Authority: Sections 6(c)(1)(A) and (B), 6(e)(1), and 17(h)(1)(B) of the Richard B.

    This notice implements mandatory provisions of sections 6(c) and 
17(h)(1)(B) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (the 
Act) (42 U.S.C. 1755(c) and 1766(h)(1)(B)). Section 6(c)(1)(A) of the 
Act establishes the national average value of donated food assistance 
to be given to States for each lunch served in the NSLP at 11.00 cents 
per meal. Pursuant to section 6(c)(1)(B), this amount is subject to 
annual adjustments on July 1 of each year to reflect changes in a 
three-month average value of the Producer Price Index for Foods Used in 
Schools and Institutions for March, April, and May each year (Price

donated foods (or cash in lieu of donated foods) for school lunches

Notice is hereby given that the national average minimum value of
