How much does a school lunch ticket / credit cost in your school district, or at the school to which you send your children?

Also, do schools there serve breakfast and/or dinner?

Kids pay $1.85, adults pay $3.00. Reduced lunches are $0.40
We serve breakfast. It is $1.00 for students and $1.50 for adults.

All of the kids in the district where I teach get free breakfast and lunch. This is true of our elementary schools and I believe the middle schools. I'm not sure about the high schools. I honestly don't know how it works that they all get free breakfast and lunch rather than some getting free and some getting reduced, but that is how it is set up somehow. We do have some families with parents who work at jobs that would take them above the income cut off for free meals so they would qualify for reduced lunch, but they get the free meals as well.

Adults have to pay $3.15 for lunch. We get the same portion size as the kids if we buy the school lunch.

Eating breakfast and lunch is so important to education that I think this is how is should be. It should just be cost baked into the cost of education to make sure everyone eats both breakfast and lunch.

When I was a kid, mom would give me lunch money, I'd skip lunch and save the money. Not a smart choice for a kid but I was a kid and kids do stupid things.

All our school are 'cashless' (execpt the Icecream in HS) So the Free lunch kids look no different then the rest of the kids.

You can deposit money by check, credit card, or take cash to the office, and they will add it to the child(rens) account(s).
