SUMMARY
Each year, the W. W. Moore, Jr. Detention Home receives funds from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a result of the Detention Home's participation in the National School Nutrition Program.  The revenue from the USDA offsets some of the costs related to the Food Service Operation at the Detention Home.  It is projected the City will receive $61,219 for FY 2018.  The amount of funds received may be more or less depending on changes in the daily population.
BACKGROUND
The W. W. Moore, Jr. Detention Home will participate in the National School Nutrition Program during FY 2018.  The anticipated revenue is projected and an appropriation is requested based on utilization rates, reimbursement rates, and the number of days each meal or snack is reimbursed.  The USDA reimbursement rates provided by the Department of Juvenile Justice Food Service Operations Unit for FY 2018 are as follows:  Breakfast - $2.09; Lunch - $3.25; and Snack - $0.88.  Breakfast and Lunch meals are reimbursed 365 days per year.  Snacks are reimbursed 104 days per year.  There is no reimbursement for Dinner meals.  Based on the Average Daily Population of 30 last fiscal year, and the number of days meals and snacks are reimbursed, the W. W. Moore, Jr. Detention Home expects to receive approximately $61,219.  USDA funds are received quarterly by the City of Danville.
