Abstract:
This study provides a detailed examination of the cost of producing reimbursable meals in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs during school year 1992-93. Data were collected in a sample of 540 schools. The study examined the costs charged to School Food Authorities, as well as those costs incurred by the school district in support of SFA operations, but not charged to the SFA. Together, the reported costs and the unreported costs are the full cost of meal production.
