Due in part to federal regulations, the lunch prices within Sweetwater ISD (Independent School District) will see an increase this fall.
The SISD Board of Trustees approved the increase during their meeting held on Monday evening. School districts are required to increase their prices as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which came about through the "Let's Move" campaign initiated by First Lady Michelle Obama.
