BUSD increases lunch prices


Last updated 5/28/2019 at 6:47am

Lunch prices for the 2019-2020 school year will be 25 cents more than what they are at Bonsall Unified School District schools for 2018-2019.

The price for lunch at the district’s elementary schools and Sullivan Middle School will increase from $3 to $3.25. Lunch for Bonsall High School students is now $3.25 and will be $3.50 for the next school year.

“Just kind of keeping up with the average,” BUSD superintendent David Jones said.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a paid lunch equity guidance policy which stipulates that if a school district’s average price for a lunch is less than the difference between free and paid reimbursements the school district must increase its revenue either by increasing its charge for paid meals or by adding non-federal funds to the district’s food service account. The 2018-2019 reimbursement amount for a free meal is $3.37.

The increase in lunch prices is expected to increase BUSD revenue by $8,700.
