  • Meal benefits apply only to the reimbursable meal.  The reimbursable meal includes milk as one of the required components and must be priced as a unit.  If the student decides to take only milk, this is not a reimbursable meal and will be charged for the milk as an a la carte item.  Just an Entrée’ or Ala carte or second meals are also not considered reimbursable meals.
