RSVP of Lake County
Meal Reimbursement Policy
Effective July 1, 2007

RSVP of Lake County offers meal reimbursement to volunteers in financial need. Meal cost will be reimbursed up to $3.00 maximum per day, but only if the volunteer station is not willing to provide or reimburse for the meal initially. The maximum monthly amount to be reimbursed to each volunteer is $12. In order to be reimbursed, the volunteer assignment must extend over a meal period or the assignment must be for a minimum of 4 hours.

A signed receipt must accompany each reimbursement submitted. The receipt to be reimbursed must be mailed to the RSVP office no later than the 5th of the following month.

A volunteer must first be approved for meal reimbursement by the RSVP director. Upon approval, the volunteer will be given meal reimbursement forms. Volunteers submitting meal forms on a timely basis will be mailed a check from the Willoughby-Eastlake School District (RSVP financial agent and program sponsor) on a quarterly basis with the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Meal reimbursement forms from a previous year will not be accepted. Meal reimbursement forms received one month late will be accepted, but will be added to the current month’s total that may not exceed the $10.00 monthly maximum. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

If you have any questions regarding this policy please contact the RSVP office.
