NJ schools expected to collect $21 million more in federal funds

Great news! New Jersey school districts are expected to receive an additional $21 million in federal dollars to feed breakfast to hungry students. In FY 2012, New Jersey collected almost $56 million in federal funds for school breakfast. That is expected to increase to $77 million in the coming fiscal year – a 38 percent increase.
