How much is school lunch in your area?

At my son's elementary school, it is $1.85. For 6th grade and older, it is $2.10. I will pack his lunch, but I was just wondering how the price of lunch around here compares to other areas.

  • Ours used to be $1.75 for elementary, but the school now has free breakfast and lunch for all the kids in the district, elementary through high school.

  • Here it's $1.65 per kid and if they qualify for reduced lunch it's $0.40

  • $2.25 and its crap. Our elementary school kitchen doesn't even have real ovens... They don't actually cook anything, it is all reheated in shelved warmers.
