Economies of Scale, the Lunch-Breakfast Ratio, and the Cost of USDA School Breakfasts and Lunches
Michael Ollinger (au); Joanne Guthrie (au)

Meal reimbursements are provided to a school food authority (SFA) on the basis of a childńˇ╗s financial need. Reimbursement rates are set nationwide, yet variation in school location, size, and other factors which may influence the costs to schools for providing meals, with implications for the adequacy of reimbursement. Previous research found that school foodservice costs vary by location. This study examines breakfast and lunch costs separately to assess how economies of scale and the balance between the number of breakfasts and lunches served affect costs. Costs of both breakfasts and lunches vary considerably across SFAs. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
