FOI Request Free School Meals Initiative

Request 101001493572

I am emailing for information regarding your local authorities implementation of the Scottish Government’s free school meals initiative which came into force in 2015: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Education/Schools/HLivi/schoolmeals/FreeSchoolMeals.
Specifically:
- How much has your local authority been given each year by the Scottish Government under this initiative?
- How much has your local authority spent on implementing this initiative?
- What is your percentage of overspend/underspend?
- If you have recorded an underspend on this initiative, what has excess money been used?
