Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Payment of State Funds for the National School Lunch Program for School Year 1996-97

 
  The state reimbursement for the National School Lunch Program
  for 1996-97 will be paid by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) on
  or around November 26, 1997.  Attached is a list of the
  payments that will be made.  These payments reflect any upward
  or downward adjustments which were made in the number of
  lunches claimed during school year 1996-97.

  In accordance with Federal regulations, this payment is based
  on the number of reimbursable lunches served to children
  during school year 1996-97.  The reimbursement rate is
  approximately $0.056305 per reimbursable lunch.  Funds earned
  by individual SNP Units were calculated using the submitted
  monthly electronic claims data, plus or minus any adjustments,
  multiplied by the state reimbursement rate.

  If you have any questions concerning this payment, please
  contact W. Terry Dougherty, Specialist or School Nutrition
  Programs at (804) 225-2074.
