GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - School District 51 school lunches are more expensive, but officials say compared to other options, they’re still a good deal.

At School Board Tuesday night members voted to approve removing the $2.25 school lunch option.

There is still a $2.75 option and free and reduced lunches aren’t being impacted.

Statewide, school lunch prices are between $2 and $3.50.

It’s projected the more expensive options will increase revenue in District 51 by $95,000. Money officials say they need for capital improvements and wellness initiatives.

District officials say average fast food lunches come in between $3.50 and $4.
