The basic grants are funded under annual appropriations to the Department of Health and Human Services and distributed by formula. The additional per-meal cash or commodity assistance is funded under annual appropriations to the Food and Nutrition Service. While states may opt for either cash or commodity assistance, most choose per-meal cash payments.
