The cost of a school breakfast will remain the same for the 2014-2015 school year.  However, an increase of .25¢
per school lunch has been approved.  Listed below are some of the factors considered in determining the necessity for the meal price increase:

  • Increased cost of food, cleaning and disposables.
  • All grains served must be “whole grain”, thus resulting in higher food cost.
  • Serving sizes of fruits and vegetables for breakfast/lunch have increased.
  • Increased cost of new equipment, equipment repairs and operational supplies.

Breakfast:
Reduced:  .30¢
Paid:  $1.50
Adult: $1.80

Lunch:
Reduced:  .40¢
Paid:  $2.45
Adult:  $3.45
