Lunch program Near exhaustion Federal reimbursement funds for Iowa's public school lunch pro- • grams will be exhausted in March according to the most recent estimate of the State School Lunch Division. This will be about the same situation as last year so fat- as lunch funds are concerned, it was pointed out. Lunch programs receive reimbursement at the rate of four cents per lunch when the Federal ap- porpriation is large enough to pay all claims in full. However for Ihe pasl several years Federal funds have not been adequate to pay all claims. Best estimates now are for only a partial payment in March and no payment in April, May, and June. Iowa's allotment for public scho ols this year ( 19G1-19G2 ) was $1,364,997 which was an Increase of about five and one half per cent over last year. Pupil participation during the same period jumped six per cent. Over all this means less reimbursement per pupil eating school lunches. During the month of December the students taking part in the local school lunch program averaged 282 per day. Superintendent Dean Curtis staled lhat the average per day last school year was about 230 students, and the year lx;fore the average was about 200. The- price for hot lunch in the Fayette Community school system is 28 cents per day. Lunch programs are also reimbursed for extra milk served under the special milk program at the rate of four cents per half pint Milk served under this program must fulfill the sanitary requirements established by the State of Iowa and must contain at least 3.25 per cent butterfat. Iowa's share of the special milk program Federal appropation appears to be sufficient to pay all milk claims during the entire school year.
