Price Going Up Slightly on Child Nutrition Program Meal

Published on June 25, 2012 by Larry Crippen

At the HISD School Board meeting, the board approved a Child Nutrition Program Meal price increase.

HISD Superintendent, Dr. Steve Johnson, informed the board that a section of the 2010 Health and Hunger-Free Act indicates that what the school charges for the lunch must be moving toward the current median price across the nation . . . .

In terms of costs, the nickel increase means going from $1.85 to $1.90 for elementary and intermediate, from $2.15 to $2.20 for middle schools, and from $2.25 to $2.30 for high school. Sixty-two percent of HISD students receive free or reduced meals.
