Due to the nutritional requirements of the Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act, effective with the 2015 calendar year for full-price lunches only, the following increases are required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees the federal National School Lunch Program/School Breakfast Program:
Elementary Breakfast is free of charge to all Elementary students
Elementary School lunch $1.65
Secondary Breakfast $0.75
Secondary Lunch $1.90
HSD lunch prices will increase starting January 5, 2015. Elementary and Secondary lunch prices will increase 10 cents. The increase is due to compliance regulations with the Paid Lunch Equity (PLE) regulation under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA).
The changes will be as follows:
Elementary is currently $1.65 and will increase to $1.75
Secondary is currently $1.90 will increase to $2.00
