School Disrict 51 says the cost of food has shot up over the past four years, and as a result, the price of a school lunch could be on the rise.
The school board will hear a proposal to increase the price of a school lunch by 50 cents during their meeting next Tuesday.
School District 51 spokesman Jeff Kirtland says even with the increase, the district would still have one of the lowest meal prices in the state, and school lunch would still cost parents less than a packed lunch.
Under the proposal, an elementary school lunch would cost $2 and middle and high school lunches would cost $2.25.
If approved, the increase would go into effect for the 2009–2010 school year.
Officials say it does not affect free and reduced cost lunches.
