While students may benefit, the decrease in federal funding hurts the school financially. Peterson said that the school will increase meal prices from $2.45 to $2.95 “to cover the cost of going off the program.” The possibility of disappearing federal dollars has left many cash-strapped school districts will little choice but to participate in the program.

But among those who have left, the complaints strike many of the same chords. Diane Pratt-Heavner, spokeswoman for the School Nutrition Association, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that other schools have left the federal program because of increased food preparation costs, poor student responses and the difficulty in planning menus, among other issues.

So they're not really losing $170k.

They are refusing the Federal teat, which is more important...they still qualify for institutional (discounted) food supplies...where today can you get a meal for $2.95 that comprises more than one measly item?

Eff the Feds, that is the right step to take.
