Parents in Wood County will be pulling more money from their wallets for their kids lunch money this year.
The Wood County Board of Education approved the new prices for meals at all schools at their weekly meeting Tuesday evening.
Prices of the meals went up five cents.
Superintendent Doctor Patrick Law says the price increase is a requirement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Doctor Law says there were no price increase in the last school year.
"One it's still a very good price for a meal and also it's a nutritious meal that is approved and it follows other guidelines by the U.S. Government and by our state that is recommended by students," added Dr. Law.
The new prices take affect on the first day of classes, August 22nd.
