No price increase recommended for school lunches this fall


The price of School District 833 lunches will remain the same when school opens in the fall if the Nutrition Services budget is approved when the school board meets May 21.

A $527,264 projected deficit for the 2009-2010 school year is being projected, but it can be covered by unallocated money in the department's budget. In the current economy, it's not a good idea to increase lunch prices, according to Nutrition Services Director Barb Osthus.
