There has been a slight increase in some of the packages from $1 to $5 but they have replaced some of the frozen vegetables with more meats. So many e-mails were received about stopping the prepackaging. Everyone wanted to continue getting it prepackaged, so they needed to increase the price to cover the time for workers.
