Wow that is depressing.
okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?
let’s look into it.
Yes, thank you. Because yes she is pushing for a healthier lunch, but the schools still value football over feeding their students, which means that instead of providing enough healthy food to keep their students from starving, they are cutting down the amount of food available to fit within the caloric requirements … while then taking the money they saved to re-sod the football field for the third year in a row. Maybe new uniforms.
^All of this. I’ve been out of HS since 2006, and even then school lunches were still shit. If you wanted something “healthy” that meant shelling out all the money you had for that week. If you wanted that $10 or whatever to last more than a day, you bought nachos and soda.
The other problem is that each district decides how they want to spend their money, and unless you strictly enforce that, then each school is going to do whatever they want and need to. 9 times out of 10, a lot of that money went to athletics, cheer, other stuff that was “more important.”
