Guam - Public school lunches went up by $0.75 today. It's the first time such a hike has been implemented in more than two decades.  Chief Brodie Elementary School staffer Maylene Wolford said, "Effective today, breakfast is still the same. As far as lunch, it was $0.75; it is now $1.50. As for reduced price [meals], it has increased $0.05, so it's now $0.40 for lunch."

The increase was recommended by Department of Education off-island consultant Evergreen Solutions. It's the first of many more to come as meals will go up by a penny each year for the next three years.
