Pursuant to RSA 189:11-a, schools which demonstrate to the Department of Education that an approved school wellness policy, as required under the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, is in effect, and that such school is providing breakfast meals to pupils that meet or exceed the United States Department of Agriculture's child nutrition criteria may apply for and receive a three cent reimbursement for each breakfast meal served to a pupil.  To the extent more schools are offering breakfast and seeking the three cent reimbursement, state general fund expenditures and local revenue will increase.
