School lunches in Roanoke County will likely go up by 10 cents next year to $2.25.
Schools officials said Thursday they had initially hoped to have the increase only at the high school level and keep elementary and middle school prices flat, but said federal regulations will necessitate an increase across the board.
School board members received information on the potential change at Thursday's board meeting.
According to information from the school system, a provision in the federal Healthy Hungry Kids Act requires school districts to increase prices to be equal to what the federal government reimburses systems. For Roanoke County, this will mean a 10-cent increase.
School board members are slated to vote on the increase next month.
