Lunch prices at Hardin County Schools continue to march upward to meet federal guidelines.
The HCS board voted Thursday to approve new lunch prices for the upcoming school year. Full lunch price goes up to $2.30, an increase from $2.20. The reduced price for students who qualify is 40 cents, and HCS Child Nutrition Services officials plan to continue a free breakfast program for all students.
The district is increasing its lunch prices by 10 cents a year to follow guidelines set forth by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
