Nutrition Services Programs that operate under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast program must evaluate their lunch pricing structure annually to determine if the cost and income from lunch meals are equitably distributed among free, reduced-price, and paid meals—Paid Lunch Equity (PLE). Programs that determine that their lunch pricing structure is not equitably distributed must take action to remedy the inequity by increasing meal prices, providing additional funds from nonfederal sources, or a combination of both. 

    Using the PLE tool, Parkway School District was required to increase lunch meal prices this year. We increased prices by 15 cents (the median amount allowed) to reduce the increases that will be required over the next few years. Moving forward, families should expect a 5-10 cent increase in meal prices each year.
