Funds are made available for disbursement to eligible institutions to reimburse their costs in providing meals and snacks to homeless children in emergency shelters and children and adults receiving nonresidential day care, including after school programs. Disbursement is made on the basis of the number of lunches, suppers, breakfasts, and snacks served, using annually adjusted reimbursement rates specified by law. Program institutions may receive reimbursement for not more than three meals per day, per participant. The program in child care institutions and homeless emergency shelters is limited to children 12 years old and younger, except for children of migrant workers, who may participate if aged 15 years and younger, and individuals with disabilities, who if over 12 years of age would be eligible to participate only in a center or home where the majority of those enrolled are 18 and younger. In after school care programs, reimbursement is available for snacks (and suppers in six States) served to children through age 18. In adult day care centers, functionally impaired adults 18 years of age and older and adults 60 years of age and older who are not residents of an institution are eligible. Meals must meet minimum requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
