COLUMBUS, Ga. — Parents in the Muscogee County School District can expect lunch prices to be just a little bit higher.

Middle and High School students currently pay $2.50, starting in August they’ll pay $2.60.

There are options for parents who can’t afford the school lunch fare.

“Every year we pass out free and reduce meal applications to all of our parents and students at the non CEP schools,” says Susan Schlader Director of Nutrition Program.

CEP stands for community eligibility provision schools.

It’s a federal provision which allows eligible students to eat breakfast and lunch for free.
