The governing board of any school district operating school cafeterias may establish and maintain a cafeteria fund reserve for the purchase, lease, maintenance, or replacement of cafeteria equipment, to be known as the cafeteria equipment reserve. The funds for this reserve are to be derived from the sales of food in the school cafeterias in an amount to be determined by the governing board and may be accumulated from year to year until expended for this purpose. Funds in the cafeteria equipment reserve shall only be used for the purchase, lease, maintenance, or replacement of cafeteria equipment.
Nothing in this section shall prohibit any school district from replacing cafeteria equipment from district funds as provided in Section 38100.
