OSD administration recommended and the Olympia School Board recently approved increasing adult meal prices to $4 per meal. The change took effect on February 1.
Every three years, districts are audited by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction against United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) standards for operating a food services program.
In January, OSPI completed our 2019 audit. The audit identified that our district was not charging enough for adult meals. We were charging $3.75 per meal and were non-compliant; not charging enough to ensure that there was no subsidy by the district or U.S.D.A. of the adult meals.
