From January 1, the cost of breakfast in the school of Yaroslavl will increase. Parents will have to pay ten rubles extra for the food of their children.

The cost of meals for students in grades 5-11 in Yaroslavl schools has risen in price from 65 to 75 rubles in May 2022. However, this did not affect the family budget in any way, since the difference of ten rubles was compensated by the regional budget and only if the child only had breakfast at school. Lunches for schoolchildren were paid for by their parents. The decision of the Regional Duma on compensation for food for the new year was not extended, so even for a one-time meal you will now have to pay in full, the portal reports. In addition, from January 1, in Yaroslavl, the parental fee for the stay of preschool children in kindergartens with a 12-hour stay will increase to 180 rubles a day.

To do this, parents need to pay for meals for schoolchildren using the Mir card or the Unified Card of St. Petersburg (UCP).
