ALPENA, Mich.— The Alpena Public School District is upping the price on school lunches for the next academic year. The increase applies to students who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch.
The increase is necessary to cover rising food costs. Meals will increase by ten cents for students at all area schools. Students will continue to have a variety of healthy meal options to choose from and the same proportion of food will be served.
It will cost $2.95 for students at the elementary school level and $3.20 for grade levels 6th-12th. The price of the breakfast meal will remain the same at a dollar 75 cents.
