Board can't agree on lunch prices for next year

-A A +A
By Staff Brunswick Beacon

It’s no surprise the cost of milk and bread are escalating, but the Brunswick County Board of Education can’t agree on how to handle the inflation.

Earlier this month, the board tabled a request to raise school lunch prices after Tina Ward, director of child nutrition services, said the department was operating with a deficit of $107,919.49 as of Jan. 1. Ward suggested the increase to try and balance the budget and retain a three-month operating balance. The increase would also help offset grocery costs, which will rise to 8 percent next school year, Ward said.
