The price of Fidya for each day of missed fasts is either to feed a poor person two meals in a day, or to give whole wheat, which is enough to feed a poor person twice in a day (1/2 Saa per Hanafi school of thought, or 1 Saa per Shaafi and other schools of thought). (1 Sa = 3 Kilograms approx.)
The Fidya price for one who has to pay it should be calculated based on the local prices of whole wheat in the place the person resides.
The price for Fidya in the USA is $3.50 by the Hanafi school of thought, and $7.00 according to the Shaafi and other schools of thought.
Hidaya distributes Fidya among the deserving in the form of dry ration to those are qualified to receive Zakat.
