Calculating Average Daily Participation (ADP)
- October is the typical month used (but you can use a different month)
- Divide the number of reimbursable meals served in the month by the number of days meals were served
- Divide this number by school enrollment
- Result is a decimal, so multiply by 100 for the percentage
- Example: 20,000 lunches, 20 days, 1200 enrolled students:
- 20,000 meals/20days meals served = 1000 meals
- 1000 meals/1200 enrolled students = 0.83
- 0.83 x 100 = 83%
