ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase in the cost of schools' meals in the U.S. Food costs per meal have continued to rise in the past two years, increasing by more than 10% from 2007, to $1.43, after a 12% hike in 2006. Costs are up by nearly 42% since 2002. Foodservice directors often cite rising fuel prices as the chief reason for the sharp increase.
