Blog post 'My school lunch'

http://www.jamieoliver.com/bloggers/vie … p?id=76436

I am pleased that this young person has taken the trouble to take a phto of their school lunch and photograph it.
It shows the problem has not gone away and is very much still an issue.

It's so outrageous, it looks like a joke.

Re: Blog post 'My school lunch'

"Yes, I currently go to school in Ohio.  I will try to post more pictures of my lunch. Currently I am working with other students to help me convince our school board to healthier lunches. I know that people have tried in the past but the problem is that healthier food costs more money which is hard for our school district due to the amount of debt we are already in. There are many days that vegetables and fruit are not offered. The breakfasts are even worse- Brownies, donuts and other junk is offered to the 1st meal! "

Re: Blog post 'My school lunch'

this is the latest blog post from this young person ....
http://www.jamieoliver.com/bloggers/vie … p?id=76534

"NEW DISCOVERIES ON SCHOOL LUNCHES!

Today I interviewed the head cook of my school. She told me all the rules and regulations that she has to follow given by the federal government. She wants healthier lunches but it's almost impossible to get them because of the rules the fed. govnt. sets! I am outraged with what she has to follow! Each meal has to be under $1.98 or prices for school lunches must rise. Many students who attend the school are already receiving a free or reduced lunch. If they're not then their family is tight with money! I am challenged to write up a menu for next year's lunch but following all the rules will be the hardest part! I mentioned with making a garden somewhere in the district but years back they did which lead to failing because nobody would take care of it during the summer. I'm glad to hear that both the kitchen ladies and my school principal are on my side! It would be wonderful if Jamie Oliver saw what was going on in my school district! Not only would I work with him but the kitchen ladies, board members, school officials, students, parents, and teachers! PLEASE JAMIE COME TO OUR SCHOOL AS THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED AND EVERYONE IN THE DISTRICT IS WILLING TO COOPERATE! "
