School meal prices increase today under a law passed during the 2009 Legislature.  Act 26 ensures that meal prices better reflect the cost of preparing the meals.

Lunch prices increase 15 cents to $2.35, while breakfast will increase 5 cents to $1 for students who are on the regular plan.  The cost of reduced price meals are unchanged for both breakfast ($0.30) and lunch ($0.40).

The cost for second and subsequent student breakfasts increases 10 cents to $2. The cost for second student entry at lunch increases 10 cents to $1.85, and the cost for a second student lunch goes up 30 cents to $4.70.  Adult breakfast prices increase 10 cents to $2, while adult lunch increases 30 cents to $4.70.

School meal prices were last raised on January 1, 2010.  The new increase reflects meal prices that are at least one half the cost of meal preparation
