The Baltimore school system is raising the price of student lunches to $3 - one of the highest among the nation's large, urban districts - under a plan that also provides free meals to every low-income student. The price is up from $2.35 for elementary and middle school students and $2.65 for high school students. Some parents could end up spending $117 more this school year under the price increase, which is the fourth in seven years and the largest in that time. Others will save because their children will no longer have to pay the 40 cents charged for a reduced-price meal.

On the opening day of school in Baltimore this week, Anthony Geraci, the new head of food services for the city schools, watched with delight as a first-grader at Calvin Rodwell Elementary School bit into a fresh peach from a Maryland farm. "There was peach juice dribbling down his chin and this big smile on his face," Mr. Geraci said. "It was the first time he ever tasted a peach that wasn't from a can." With food prices rising nationally, school districts across the country are charging more for school lunches to keep up with costs.

For the first time in four years, the cost of a school lunch in Carroll County is being increased. The need to raise the price, set to take effect this fall, can be traced to rising fuel and food costs, according to school officials. "The price of everything is going up," said Superintendent Charles I. Ecker. "It costs us more not only for the item, but for the transportation to get it there." School officials unanimously approved a 15-cent increase at a board meeting last week, bringing the price of lunch to $1.75 at the elementary school level and $1.90 in middle and high schools.

School lunch prices rising by 40 cents School lunch prices in the county are set to jump nearly 20 percent when students return in August. The county school board approved the increase this week after officials said they need to charge more because of the rising cost of food and supplies. Without the increase, staff members said, the school system stood to lose 46 cents on every lunch. Lunch at county elementary schools would increase to $2.90 from $2.50. At middle and high schools, lunch prices would go to $3 from $2.60.

Dan Swartz was a man on a mission as he flipped open the silver cooler, retrieved a small carton of strawberry milk and headed down the cafeteria lunch line for the main course: pepperoni pizza and french fries. He was the first to get his food during "C" lunch at Howard High School in Columbia, and by the time the cashier had dropped the change into Swartz's outstretched hand, the 17-year-old already was making his way toward a group of friends. The entire process took less than a minute.
