How Program Statistics Data are Reported

Number of Contracting Entities (CE) and sites

CE and sites are counted as participants if they have submitted at least one approved claim in the program year.

Average meals served per day

Average meals served per day is calculated as the total number of meals served in a claim month divided by the average serving days in that month.  In reporting average meals served per day for more than one claim month, the total number of meals served in a period is divided by the sum of the average, non-zero monthly serving days in that time period.

Meals served for the year

Total meals served for the year is calculated as a sum of all meals reported on approved claims for the program year.


Meal reimbursements are reported as the sum of all approved reimbursements for the program year.
