Revenue from ‘reimbursable meals’ on the decline in Salem schools
The amount of money the school district receives from the federal government for reimbursable meals is down substantially this year, Superintendent Michael Delahanty said. The net revenue for the program is down by about $40,000 compared to last year, he said.
More students are opting for the a la carte meal options as opposed to the full reimbursable meals, Delahanty said.
In addition to the loss of federal funds for reimbursable meals, Delahanty said the total cost per meal prepared in the district has increased by 9 cents over last year.
