School Lunch Prices Increase for 2014-2015
Monday, August 25, 2014
In June, the Liverpool Central School District Board of Education approved changes to the price of school lunch for the 2014-2015 school year.
Students at the elementary and middle school levels will now pay $2.25 for a school lunch, while students at the high school level will now pay $2.50. The price of milk also will increase 10 cents to 70 cents.
The District will offer universal breakfast, at no cost to students, in all LCSD buildings for the 2014-2015 school year.
As part of The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, school districts across the country are required to meet 26 regulations over the next few years. One such regulation involves equity in school lunch pricing. Nationally, all federally funded food service programs are mandated to increase lunch prices for a full pay lunch if prices are below the current goal of $2.65. The maximum annual increase amount allowed is 10 cents.
As always, Free and Reduced Meal applications are available for families who may need assistance paying for school lunch. Applications approved during the 2013-2014 school year expire on September 30, 2014, and parents/ guardians must submit new Free & Reduced Applications at the start of the 2014-2015 school year to continue eligibility in the program after September 30, 2014.
