Lunch prices at AC will go up next year

March 14, 2014

    The price of school lunch for Adams Central students will see a substantial increase next year as the AC board of education Tuesday unanimously approved the proposed hike.
    Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lori Richmond reported the increase is due to federal regulations requiring schools increase the cost of lunch each year. What is unusual about this year is the amount of the increase.
    In previous years AC has seen lunch increases average about $.05 for all three schools. However beginning next year, new regulations mandating a greater selection of fresh fruits and vegetables be made available to students will have a significant impact on the cost of daily lunch prices.
    “I’m glad we can offer our students more of a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables,” said Richmond. “Unfortunately, those things cost quite a bit more so we were forced to make a greater adjustment to the lunch prices.”
