$500,000 to Idaho to Help Expedite School Meal Programs

Posted By on Mon, Aug 1, 2011 at 4:20 PM

More than $500,000 was earmarked today for Idaho to improve enrollment in school meals programs. Idaho agencies that administer the National School Lunch Program were awarded grants totaling $513,190 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The funds are geared to reduce paperwork and expedite certification of students for free meals in the school breakfast and lunch programs.

"Fewer eligible families will have to fill out duplicative paperwork for healthy school meals," said USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack. Direct Certification Grants totaling nearly $3 million have been made to 15 states since January, including Idaho's announcement today.
