Increased already in March, the cost for breakfast and lunch goes up again with the start of the 2009-10 academic year as the food and nutrition services department aims to offset rising costs and shrinking reserves.

Breakfast will increase by a nickel. Lunch will go up a dime.

The new charges are:

Breakfast: Elementary, $1.25; secondary, $1.40; adult, $1.60.

Lunch: Elementary, $2; secondary, $2.50; adult, $3.35.

The district also offers alternative lunch combinations at secondary schools for $3, and a variety of a la carte options.
