ST. CLOUD – It’s going to cost your kids more money to eat lunch in the St. Cloud Area school district next year.

During tonight’s (Thursday)school board meeting, the board is expected to approve a ten-cent increase for the school lunch program.

Federal law passed in 2010 requires schools to charge a minimum weighted average price for paid lunches.  Schools who don’t meet the minimum price are required to annually increase prices by ten-cents until the minimum weighted price is reached.

Elementary prices will go from $2.20 to $2.30, secondary prices will go from $2.40 to $2.50, and adult prices will go from $3.65 to $3.75.  Breakfast and milk prices are not expected to change.
