CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - School officials in Wyoming say school lunch sales are picking up after a slight drop that coincided with a healthier menu that took effect last year. Some schools in other states are opting out of the healthier school lunches. But Kevin Concannon with the U.S. Department of Agriculture says no more than a couple hundred out of the 100,000 schools in the federal lunch program are opting out because of the new menu.
School officials in Laramie County report more lunch participation this year after a slight decline last year. They say students and parents have had concerns about food quantity but approve of the quality and variety of food offered.
