Finance and Operations: school nutrition

Nutrition program funded through USDA "self-funded program" through federal and state funding plus user fees
school lunch price raised in accordance with federal law
"few in the state" that can say budget covers full operating costs
biggest line item increase is in equipment: replacement this year
Foley: ceiling price is ? $2.65, so increases over time for us, but it is a moving target
"enterprise account completely covering its costs" very rare: Worcester does it!
Novick: no laborer, done for budgetary reasons, but works ok
Farm Bill? Monitoring at this time
