  • $ 27.00 ea. kid (I have 2) and that is every 2 to 3 weeks...It is ridiculous.
    Once in awhile they do take lunch it is cheaper this way but someitmes we are always on the go.

  • If we had to pay lunch would be $48 per month per kid (I have 3). We're on the free lunch program otherwise they would be brown bagging it.

  • School lunches here are 2 bucks a meal and morning milk for k-3 grades is another 30 bucks for the semester. We only do the morning milk I send my son with a lunch everyday. Somedays costs more others less but the food is so much better than the school lunches.

  • We take lunch because its crazy expensive for what you get. Elementary lunch is $2.75 and the high school kids have a full out food court where you can get Subway, Dominos and spend $8/day easily! Our lunch program is self supported so I have no issues with it if people want to spend that much money but its not for us!

  • We qualify for reduced lunch, which is .35 for lunch. Otherwise, it's 1.75/day for elementary school.

  • My ds is in elementary and lunch is $1.75/day, so I take $60 to the school about every 2 months.

  • reduced lunch so $2 a week. Full price is 8.75 a week.
