With the start of school right around the corner I thought I'd direct you to this older post I did awhile ago on how I prepare lunches for my girls to take to school.

My oldest is in high school now and the price for hot lunch is around $3.00 which translates to nearly $60.00 a month. With our total monthly grocery budget set at $150.00 for the three of us this amount for school lunch seems astronomical, not to mention, the quality of the food, to me anyway, is highly questionable.
I think it still pays to pack our lunches from home.
