Ashe County Schools are increasing meal prices for adults.

The Ashe Post and Times reports the increase will take effect this school year for teachers, staff, custodians and parents.

Adult lunches will increase from $3.50 to $4. Adult breakfasts will increase from $1.25 to $1.50. Student meal prices will not be affected.

According to the report, the Ashe County Board of Education unanimously approved the increase in meal costs for adults at their August 6th meeting.

The decision was made in order to be in compliance with USDA regulations, and the increase should stand for multiple years and lead to less changes in the future.
