INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

School Nutrition Program State Reimbursement Payment for the National School Lunch Program

 

Federal Regulations (7CFR 210.17) require states to appropriate a minimum level of state funds to be paid as reimbursement to school divisions that participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The required minimum funding level for Virginia is $ 5,801,932.

The per meal lunch reimbursement rate is calculated by dividing the funding level by the total number of lunches served in the previous school year. The per meal reimbursement rate for lunches served in the 2004-2005 school year is $0.049085. Attached is a chart that details the total NSLP state reimbursement payment for each school division. Each divisions reimbursement amount is equal to the 2004-2005 reimbursement rate multiplied by the number of lunch meals served and reported by the division in the 2004-2005 school year.

 

The state lunch reimbursement will be paid by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) on October 16, 2005. These funds will be identified as School Nutrition State Match on the electronic transfer document and must be credited to the school nutrition account.

 

Questions may be directed to Lynne A. Fellin, acting director of School Nutrition Programs, at (804) 225-2074 or to the assigned school nutrition program specialist.
