ISSUE:           Increase in Adult Lunch Prices

 

FOR:              Review and Approve

 

CONTACT:  Sue White, Nutritional Services Director

 


BACKGROUND: 

We are required by the State to charge adult breakfast and lunch prices at a price that is at least what it costs us to produce the meals. “The cost to adults needs to be set higher than free plus state reimbursement plus commodities.”  I am suggesting an increase to $3.00 for adult lunch for the 2009-2010 school year.  Our current adult meal price is $2.75. 

 

Our current adult breakfast price of $1.75 is in alignment with our costs so we are okay with what was approved for 2008-2009 school year. 

 

 

 

THE SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION IS:

“Increase adult lunch price to $3.00 to cover state mandate and actual cost as the formula dictates.”
