School districts will increase their lunch prices next year

Posted: Updated:

Just as school is breaking for the summer several school districts in Southeast Texas are informing parents about an increase in lunch prices come this fall.

BISD's nutrition director Joanna Genuardi says the Texas Department of Agriculture reimburses the school district about $3 for every free and reduced lunch they serve, so now the TDA wants the schools to match that price.

As BISD lunches go up by 25-cents other school districts are also increasing their prices.

Students in the Vidor, West Orange-Cove, Nederland and Port Neches-Groves school districts will all be paying 10-cents more for lunch.

Bridge City ISD and the Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD will increase their lunch prices as well but they haven't decided on an amount yet.

If you want to know the price increase of your child's school lunch contact your local school district.
