Rising food costs and new federal government requirements could cause school lunches in the Mitchell School District to go up 25 cents next year. The issue was discussed during a look at the 2014-15 budget at Monday night’s Mitchell School Board meeting.

Prices would be $2.65 at the elementary schools, $2.85 at the middle school and high school, and $3.70 for adults.  Mitchell Food Services Director Sean Moen says every dime increase in school lunches brings in 37,000 dollars for the district.

The increase would cost a family 44 dollars more per student for the school year.
