Meals served at for profit centers during a calendar
month when less than 25 percent of the center’s
enrollment or licensed capacity (whichever is less) receive
title XIX or title XX benefits or are eligible for free
and reduced price meals may not be claimed for reimbursement.
Meals served to adults which are claimed for reimbursement
under part C of title III of the Older Americans Act
