SCSD2 board approves school meal price increases to combat inflation of food costs | Local News | #schoolsaftey

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan County School District 2 board unanimously approved an increase in 2023-2024 school meal prices for the first time in more than 20 years at its meeting Monday.

SCSD2 Food Services Director Leslie Haberkern said inflation has hit the district’s food service program hard — for example, she said the cost of a case of applesauce has increased by 48%. The school’s food service program is partially funded by the National School Lunch Program, but Haberkern said current meal prices are no longer enough to cover what the district pays. According to the SCSD2 budget for fiscal year 2021-2022, the district spent more than $2.2 million on food service-related expenses.
