Households which are certified as of August 1, 1998, to receive food stamps or TANF will re- ceive a letter of direct certifica- tions for meals from the Depart- ment of Social and Health Services during August 1998. This certifi- cate may be returned to the child's school in place of the completed application. Applications may be submit- ted at any time during the year. Under the provisions of the free and reduced-price policy the des- ignated approving official(s) will review applications and determine eligibility. Parents or guardian dissatisfied with the ruling of the official may wish to discuss the decision with the approving offi- cial on an informal basis. Parents wishing to make a formal appeal may make a request either orally or in writing to Dr. Pat Duffy for a hearing on the decision. Households are required to re- port increases in household in- household si.e. In the case of households that provide a food stamp or TANF case number, the household must notify school officials of any termination of benefits for the child. Also, if a house- hold member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact the school. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household's income falls at or below the levels shown above. In certain cases, foster chil- dren are also eligible for school meal benefits, lfa household has foster children living with them and wishes to apple for them, the household should contact the school for more information.

If any member of a house- hold believes he or she has been discriminated against, he or she should write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture, Wash- ington, D.C. 20250 Quad City.

Biggie Drink, 1 billion. "Our customers like the Super Value Menu because it offers more than just side items," says Thomas. "They can choose from 10 different items to enjoy a snack or make a full meal complete with dessert." The Wendy's Super Value Menu includes: Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, Side Sal- ad, Baked Potato, 8-ounce Chili, Big- gie Fries, Biggie Drink, 16-ounce Frosty Dairy Dessert, Jr. Cheese- burger Deluxe (added in 1991), Cae- sar Side Salad (1991), and 5-piece Chicken Nuggets (I 996).

Wendy's Old Fashioned Ham- burgers Restaurants was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas, who named the chain after one of his daughters.

How about a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger at Wendy's? Or Biggie Fries? Or a 16- ounce Frosty Dairy Dessert? Yes, the year best remembered for the crumbling of the Berlin Wall, also saw the prices of fast-food items tumble when Wendy's introduced an innovative'new concept called the Super Value Menu (SVM). Launched at a time when com- petitors relied on steep discounts and coupons to weather the tough eco- nomic storm, Wendy's SVM was fresh and simple -- so much so, that it's still the focus for fast-food copy- cats today. It featured a wide vari- ety of menu items at a special price -- 99 cents -- everyday. "We created the Super Value Menu because our customers de- serve quality food, a variety of choices and a super value every day of the week," says Dave Thomas, Wendy's founder and television spokesman. "Nine years later, we still believe in that concept -- and customers do, too." The sales speak for themselves. Nearly 7 billion Wendy's Super Value Menu items have been sold since 1989.
