Alhambra District Child Nutrition Department
Alhambra School District takes great pride in offering affordable and
nutritious meals for our students. The 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids
Act requires school lunch prices increase annually until the price is
equal to the price set in federal guidelines which is currently $2.70.
In order to comply with federal guidelines, Alhambra will increase only
lunch meal prices by 10¢. This change only affects students who pay
full-price lunches, and will not affect students who qualify for free or
reduced-price food services.
Beginning July 1, 2015, lunch meal prices will increase. The new meal prices are listed below:
The price of the hot lunch or salad bar is as follows:
Lunch (daily) Breakfast (daily)
Student $2.00 $1.00
Reduced* $ .40 $ .30
Adult $3.15 $1.60
Adult Mini-Lunch $2.40
For students choosing to eat breakfast at school, serving will begin at 7:45 a.m. and end at 8:25 a.m. *REDUCED
