March 29, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Members of the Punxsutawney Area School Board say they dislike the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA ) mandating price increases for school lunches.

District Cafeteria Manager Denise Geist said the USDA eventually wants all of the school districts to get to $2.51 as the price per lunch.
She said she thinks the district should raise the price of a lunch for next year by 10 cents.

“We can raise it a nickel like we did last year,” Geist said, adding that the operative number for last year was $2.46 per lunch.
