Hardin County Schools had food issues to resolve Thursday on the board’s meeting agenda.
School lunch prices again will be increased by a dime next school year. Full-price meals for students will cost $2.40, up from $2.30 this year. A federal regulation that was part of the 2011 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids establishes a formula for meal prices and requires the district to implement annual 10-cent increases.
Based on family income, many students in the district qualify for free lunches or reduced-price meals, which are set next year at 40 cents per day.
