Nationwide the price increase has not spared the cost of food in schools. The Petersburg Breakfast and lunch children rose by 31% and 48%. It is unknown why it is in the North-Western Federal district there was such a significant increase in prices. For comparison – in Moscow, food in educational institutions has become more expensive by only 4-7 %
The fall of the ruble had a growing impact on the financial condition of Russia. A couple of years more and more people complain about the significant increase in prices for food, goods and services. Fortunately, in recent years he has slowed down. Our government is doing everything to facilitate the life of citizens and to allow Russian agricultural producers to grow, strengthening its position in the domestic market. The introduction of Russian food embargo were delighted not only local farmers, but also food plants focused on domestic raw materials.
The authorities of different regions and districts the challenge is to properly solve the problem of rising prices of food products for educational institutions. But not all succeed.
Better than the rest of the regions went to Moscow. Higher prices of school meals in the capital amounted to only 4-7%. Experts attribute this to changes that occurred not so long ago in the baby foods of Moscow, where the local table came specialized school power plants. Such companies often work with local producers, where the races of the dollar and the Euro have less influence than foreign suppliers.
St. Petersburg in the matter of restraining prices on baby food far behind from Moscow. For comparison, before-school Breakfast in the Northern capital cost 38 rubles, and with the new year already 50 roubles. The same applies to Lunches, the price had increased from 58 to 86 rubles. Only a month ago the set lunch would cost St. Petersburg schoolboy at 96.5 rubles, and now already 136 rubles.
The state still allocates substantial funds to children from low-income families, on a par with their more affluent peers, could eat in the school cafeteria. Children-beneficiaries are fed for free at the expense of state and municipal subsidies. For some categories of children provided for and other measures of state support.
Improve the situation with the economic crisis in Russia – is not yet clear. We can only hope that our country will not experience severe consequences of inflation, as during the 1998 crisis, and the authorities of the region and the country will not allow speculation in the sphere of school and preschool nutrition.
