It just got a little more expensive to eat at College Station schools. The cost of all meals is going up a quarter.
That means lunch will cost $2 for elementary students and $2.25 for grades 5 through 12.
Breakfast will cost $1.25 for all grade levels. While meals for teachers and staff will also increase. Breakfast for non-students will cost $1.50 and $2.75 for lunch.
This is the first increase in seven years and officials say it's necessary because of the rising cost of food and gasoline.
The price of reduced meals for students who qualify will not be affected.
The changes will take effect August 2008.
