Attention! What all can you get out of $2.95 for lunch besides four items that are horrible and never cooked to the best of their ability? I believe we deserve more or we play less and lower the price of lunch down to what it should cost what do you say?

“Ring, Ring, Ring” the 11:24 bell goes off as I race my way to the lunch room starving after a whole morning of hard dedicated work I’ve put in for 5 long hours in the morning. When I get to the lunch room all I hear is talking from other students and of course it’s nothing positive it’s about how school lunch is always the same and they barely give us enough food but expect us to pay so much money for a meal that cost $2.95 that we only get 3 sides for and the food we get is the same every

“We should never have to pay as much as we do for school lunch especially if all it we are getting for an example is a hot dog that is over cooked and the bread is burnt and on top of that the fries we get on the side are crisps and feel as if they were left in the oven for decades.” After hearing that from another former student I say that we should be able to come to school and be able to get the choice in food we want or the prices should go down.

Everyone should have a say in what they eat especially if they are the ones paying for it daily because what might be good to one isn’t good to all. Many say the objective of school is to feel comfortable while getting your education but put yourself in our shoes how would you feel to come to school for 8 hours in a day doing what you’re supposed to do and giving money to the school by buying food when your purchasing the food and not getting what you want nor deserve. I say that we get a say in food or that we don’t pay period point blank.

So for the final conclusion I write this to let everyone know how we feel about school lunch and so that you can have some feedback and so that we can get a change and get what we deserve which is better school lunch or drop the prices and give us what we
