The article focuses on a study conducted by the School Nutrition Association (SNA) which surveyed school foodservice directors in the U.S. According to the SNA study, the National School Lunch Program reimbursement is not enough to cover the costs of producing a meal during the 2008-09 school year. The study cites the average cost to prepare and serve lunch. Additional increases in the cost of food, supplies, labor, gas and transportation are expected by surveyed districts.
