(This amendment captures $2.5 million in the first year from the general fund from the school meals expansion initiative. This first year allocation is no longer necessary, because the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a waiver allowing all students to receive free meals for the 2020-2021 school year, regardless of income eligibility.)
