CHRISTIE WANTS TO CUT STATE DOLLARS FOR SCHOOL BREAKFASTS

In Gov. Chris Christie’s proposed budget, the state will no longer be kicking in for subsidized breakfasts. Northjersey.com reports that Christie would cut $3 million that the state kicks in for the program. Schools would be left to split $41.4 million from the federal government. The proposal would also take the state from $8 million to $5.6 million for the subsidized lunch program. Again, federal dollars make up the majority of the lunch program.
