SUBJECT:

Payment of State Funds for the School Nutrition Program for the School Year 2003-2004

 

Federal Regulations (7CFR 210.17) require states to provide state reimbursement for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. The state reimbursement will be paid through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) no later than the end of November 2003. These funds will be identified as SCHOOL NUTRITION STATE MATCH on the electronic transfer document and must be credited to the school divisions food service account.

 

The state payment to each school division is based on the total number of lunch meals claimed for reimbursement during the 2002-2003 school year. Attached is a list of the payment amounts that will be made for each school division.

 

If you have any questions concerning this payment, please contact the school nutrition specialist assigned to your division or Catherine Digilio Grimes, director of School Nutrition Programs, at (804) 225-2074.
