Food issues are on the menu for Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education.

The board will consider food prices for students and adults for 2022-2023 school year. No change is planned for the price – zero – to all GGUSD students under a federal universal meal service.

However adults will see a 30-cent increase for breakfast from $2.70 to $3. The price of lunch for adults will rise by 50 cents from $4.50 to $5.

Also on Tuesday, the board will consider renewal of a memorandum of understanding with Jamboree Housing Corporation to recover “excess edible food” from GGUSD kitchens and make it available to Jamboree and Abound Food Care for the needy.

So far, the program has recovered the equivalent of over 21,000 meals and diverted over 25,000 pounds from landfills.

The board will meet at 10331 Stanford Ave. at 7 p.m. The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove and parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana and Westminster.
