School Dinners in Formby set to Rise

School dinner prices across the borough are set to rise by 50p per week.
Unions and campaigners fear take-up rates will tumble, leaving some kids without a healthy meal each day.Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“We know schoolchildren who eat healthy meals get the best out of lessons.“The Government should be investing in school meals, not forcing schools to put up the price. Kids will be robbed of the chance of a decent meal.”

Schools blame food and energy prices and the impact of the new living wage on labour costs.

On yer bike: Why you should cycle more
