Federal requirements prompt higher school lunch prices
Get ready to pay more in the cafeteria. The Red Wing School Board voted Monday night to raise the price of school lunches for the 2011-12 school year.
The increases are due to requirements from the United States Department of Agriculture, following the Healthy and Hunger-Free Act of 2010.
Elementary lunches will increase by a dime and middle and high school lunches will go up a nickel. Prices for free and reduced lunches and all breakfasts will remain the same.
