Why School Lunch?

As the cost of everything increases, there is one meal that is still a great value: both nutritionally and economically! School lunch is still an incredible bargain at $2.50 for Clatskanie Elementary School and $3.00 for Clatskanie Mid-High School.

Every School Lunch Includes Five Great Choices:

  • Milk – Fat free or 1% - flavored or regular
  • Vegetables – From salad to fresh carrot sticks
  • Fruit – Everything from kiwi to locally grown apples; often fresh
  • Grains – More whole grain items like rolls or sandwich bread
  • Meat or meat alternate –White meat chicken, bean chili, lean beef

Save Money: Eat School Lunch

On average it costs less to buy a school lunch than to bring a lunch from home. The estimated national average of a school lunch from home was $3.43 last school year.[1]

School Lunch - $2.08 vs. Bagged Lunch - $3.43
