Food Prices Affecting School Cafeterias

News Flash: Food Prices Affecting School Cafeterias

We already heard about gas prices affecting the quality of schools and it was only a matter of time before the other bane of our existence, sky-rocketing food prices, started to affect schools as well. The cost of staples like milk, eggs, and flour has risen so much that school cafeterias are struggling to maintain both nutritious meals and full staffs. Because schools have to meet weekly requirements for protein, starch, calories and specific food groups in order to qualify for federal reimbursement, more likely than not personnel will be scaled back to accommodate rising prices.
