Need milk? It'll cost parents and students

There are 13 comments on the Pittsburgh Tribune story from Sep 5, 2007, titled Need milk? It'll cost parents and students. In it, Pittsburgh Tribune reports that:

“We will continue to monitor the price of milk and make any necessary future price adjustments accordingly.”

George Zappas has three words to describe the soaring price of milk. "It's killing us," said Zappas, the food service director at North Hills School District for 28 years. via Pittsburgh Tribune

That's fine. Why not provide some orange juice or something? I find that cow milk is not essential to a human's diet. At one time, it was a cheap way for a kid to get calcium, but there are other foods that have calcium. I'm not trying to bash milk or anything, it's just not the cost efficient "bone juice" it used to be.

Of course, being in college now, I'd kill to pay $3 for breakfast, let alone a dollar.
Oh, you think $3 something is tough? I'm lactose intolerant, and my "milk" costs at least twice as much.

I know quarters add up, but if Milk really is that essential, assuming that a student eats breakfast every school day of the year, it's only an extra $45 a year per student (180 school days *$0.25 increase) It's really not THAT much.

Just my $2.84 (that's my 2 cents, accounting for inflation.)
