NSLP deflation

Another pretty graph from Funds for Learning, this one about the number of kids served in various discount bands. The FFL numbers seemed unbelievably high to me, so I looked into NSLP a little.  Turns out the FFL numbers may be in the ballpark, though it is tough to say for sure, because there are a lot of ways to reach a 72% discount.

But I found this interesting tidbit: "Between 16 percent and 25 percent of those whose family incomes make them eligible for free or reduced-price meals are not certified." (, page 128)

So discounts should be even higher.
