ACS school lunch prices to increase

School lunch prices will increase for Andalusia students in the coming school year.

The board of education on Monday improved the following prices for school lunches:

• Student lunch prices (currently $2) will be $2.25.

• Adult lunch prices (currently $2.60) will be $3.

• Visitor prices will be $3.50.

• AHS student breakfast prices (currently $0.75) will be $1. A free, universal breakfast is provided at both AES and AJHS.

• Adult breakfast prices will be $1.50.

The adult lunch costs do not include tea.

The prices are being increased for the first time since 2011, and the increase is mandated due to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
