Meals Costs Up

October 24, 1991

Students receiving reduced-cost breakfasts and lunches will be askedto pay an extra 20 cents beginning Nov 1.

Those receiving free meals will not be affected. But reduced-cost breakfasts will increase to 30 cents, while lunch costs will rise to 40 cents.

The price increases are in response to a 25 percent cut in state aid to the $6.9 million food services program.

Last year, Marylandschools served 948,000 reduced-price breakfasts and 4.5 million lunches. Across the state, more than 37,000 students are eligible for reduced-price meals.
