COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Muscogee County students will pay a little more for their school meals.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 has a clause that requires school systems to have equity in pricing.

The Muscogee County school board approved an increase of 10 cents to all student meal prices with the exception of secondary breakfast which will be increased by 5 cents.

The increase would be effective for the 2011-2012 school year.
