WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Meals in the Waynesboro Area School District might cost more next year if the proposed food services budget is adopted by the school board.

The board will likely adopt the final food services budget in June, according to Caroline Dean, business manager.

Preliminary information indicates the cost of lunch for students could increase 15 cents at both the elementary and secondary levels, bringing the total to $1.70 for elementary students and $1.85 for secondary students.

Breakfast costs are proposed to increase 10 cents, bringing the totals to 80 cents at the elementary schools and 90 cents at the secondary schools.

Revenue exceeded expenditures for food service in 2004-05, and Dean expects they will do the same for 2005-06.

The increase to meal costs is because of staff benefits, delivery costs and the meals themselves.

"The healthier foods, unfortunately, cost more," Dean said.
