Board raises hot lunch prices

-A A +A

Schools > The cost will now be $4, up from $3.75

By Tris DeRoma

During a recent special session, the school board opted to raise the price of hot lunch by 25 cents, from $3.75 to $4.
Though the board was toying with the idea for a few months, it was all but forced to do so once it received new information about the hot lunch program’s financials at the special session.
During the session, it was revealed that the program actually lost money this year.
According to figures presented by the district’s CFO John Wolfe and business service specialist Regina Mertz, the district finished the program $3,426 in the red. The board weighed this sobering news with other factors, which included an aging dishwasher and heating equipment that apparently is in need of repair.
What prompted the price discussion in the first place was that the district’s hot lunch provider, Summit, recently announced that it was raising its production costs from $3.71 to 3.79. Summit creates the hot lunches off campus and delivers them to the kitchen at the Los Alamos Middle School. From there, they are distributed to the other schools.
