Working in a San Ramon district school I see the lunches offered. The quality is terrible. All the district cares about is money, money and more money!

Yes Stella!!!! The district only cares about money. They makes millions and millions off of these ridiculous lunch prices. Shame on them.

And I am assuming that with the increased price they will increase quality? The school lunches are a joke.
I pack my child s lunch because they are so unhealthy.

Really Leti, of course it is about money as just a year ago the district reported a surplus in funds so there should be no reason to raise the lunch price!

You all are a special kind of stupid.

"Increases in meal prices should result in revenues sufficient to cover ongoing program expenditures and minimize the need for a general fund contribution to Fund 13 (child nutrition) in 2015-16," Hall wrote in his report to the school board.

This would be the district's first meal price increase since 2009, he said.

If approved, an elementary school lunch would cost $4.25, a lunch at secondary schools would cost $4.75 and breakfast meals would cost $2.50.

Raising prices is estimated to generate about $692,000, a needed revenue source for a department anticipating a revenue shortfall of almost $605,000 in 2014-15, according to Hall.

Someone has to pay for all the free and reduced-cost lunches that some students are receiving. Another case of "Take from the rich and give to the poor," although many of us are not "rich" and many of them are not "poor." Sigh.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
