School Lunch Prices To Rise

Anyone who's been to the supermarket lately knows prices having been going up up up. The school board has decided to hike the cost of lunch by 25 cents, according to the Flier/Sun's local blog:

The price of breakfast at all schools will rise from $1.50 to $1.75. Elementary school lunch will increase from $2.25 to $2.50, while middle and high school lunches will go from $2.75 to $3. The “signature” high school lunches will jump from $3.50 to $3.75.

At the June 12 meeting, Mary Klatko, who heads the system’s meals program, told the board that in the coming year food and supply costs are projected to increase by 10 to 20 percent over current costs.
