Data Sources

 *SNAP participation is provided through the CT Department of Social Services and represents the average monthly assistance recipients for each town.

% Eligible for Free or Reduced School meals is provided through the CT State Department of Education. A child is eligible for subsidized meals if they are on SNAP/Food Stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or at 130% or 185% of poverty.

**School Breakfast Participation is based on data from the CT State Department of E ducation. The participation rate indicates the percent of free & reduced price lunch students that eat a free & reduced price school breakfast in any given town through the public schools. Towns with no information did not have a school breakfast program in school years 11-12.

The Summer Food Service Program provides free meals to kids 18 and under during the summer when school meals are not available. If a town had "Free Summer Meals for Kids", there was at least one location in that town in 2010 where kids could go for a free breakfast and/or lunch. Data from the CT State Department of Education.

Unemployment data is from the CT Department of Labor for July 2013.
