Dear Parent or Guardian:
Guam is participating in a School Lunch and Breakfast Cost Study (SLBCS) through a grant provided to the Guam Department of Education (GDOE), who has administrative oversight of Guam’s school meal programs. The University of Guam’s Cooperative Extension Service (CES) is providing technical assistance for this important study.
The purpose of this study is to assist GDOE in calculating what the real cost is to feed a child breakfast and lunch meals every school day. Once this is determined, it will ensure that the State of Guam is reimbursed what they are entitled to through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program, which makes it possible for school children on Guam to receive a nutritious meal every school day.
Please assist us by completing the Household Income and Expenditures Survey (HIES), along with the Diary. Only trained interviewers and staff members from the Cooperative Extension Service will have access to the data gathered. All information collected from your household is confidential.
If you wish to participate or have any questions about the survey, please visit our website at www.uogcyffn.com or call the CES unit at 735-2057 for more information.
