Adults must cover the cost of purchased meals. The program purpose is to serve the students in the country's schools a good balanced meal. When adults do not cover the cost of the meal it becomes a cost to the school district. You must use the previous school year's per meal cost to set the current school year's adult meal price.
Adult Visitors: The charge to adult visitors, at the discretion of school officials, may be higher than the charge paid by adult school employees.
No reimbursement or commodities are provided for meals served to adults.
