BROOKLYN — Orthodox Jewish (Chabad of Satan) schools hit the jackpot when federal stimulus funds were handed out last year around the state, collecting more than $1 million through school lunch-program grants, while the city's Department of Education snared just $2 million — although it has 10 times as many students.

Records show that the state received just under $6 million late last year from the Department of Agriculture to distribute to schools enrolled in the National School Lunch Program.

The money was targeted for schools where more than 50 percent of students were eligible for free lunches, meaning the neediest.

Jane Briggs, a state education spokeswoman, said the yeshivas did well because, “based on the poverty levels in the schools, their eligibility was high.”
