School district to vote on lunch prices

July 23, 2008 8:32:35 AM PDT
Galveston students might have to carry more money for school meals next year. School board trustees will decide tonight whether to hike prices between 15 and 35 cents for breakfast, lunches, teacher meals and visitor meals. The increase is expected to raise about $62,000. The money would be used to offset the rising costs of food and fuel.

Galveston's public school district last raised the cost of school meals in 2004.

HISD is currently under contract for the upcoming school year. It's waiting to see if the increase in food prices could affect its menu. The district is in the process of building a facility where it will prepare all of its school lunches and be able to store food.
