School food prices are on the rise

District gets good marks on DESE review

May 13, 2012
SOUTHBRIDGE — Students will probably pay more for school meals at all levels next year.

In almost all cases, costs are rising by 25 cents, although elementary school breakfast, which was free, will be 50 cents, and milk will stay at that price.

"These price increases have nothing to do with [the food service] fund balance, nothing to do with that building project, and everything to do with the federal government," said Business Manager Terry Wiggins. "… It's a requirement that's being mandated by the federal government."
