School Lunch Interview

School Lunch
School Lunch

Have you ever tried the school cafeteria food and been disappointed? Or can you not live without your daily slice of pizza? We asked several people who have eaten there their thoughts on what’s good, and what’s not.   Megan Burns, a freshman, mentioned, “I was just talking about how good the pizza is but I hate it now. They changed it, and it’s not good anymore.” Megan did mention she liked the fried chicken, which they offered once a few months ago, but haven’t again. Abbie Landers, a freshman, said she liked the parfait but believes the regular chicken sandwich is unappetizing. These kids said that they all like it when the cafeteria offers new things. We asked Mr. Metzger, a teacher,  about his opinion on cafeteria food.   “I think they should serve food like they’re serving students and staff that need nutritional value rather than serving food that looks cheaply made,” he stated. He usually has leftovers from home that he brings because “I don’t like the school food because I feel tired after eating it. It doesn’t feel like its fresh.”  “I would add freshly made salads, freshly made pasta, and maybe some fruit. Essentially anything that would be freshly made.” he added. He said his dream school lunch would be a freshly made soup with a side of salad. He also added that they should allow people to pay with touch pay or ATM. It would make it easier for people to get lunch who might not have cash on hand. What do you think? What’s your favorite thing to eat at the cafeteria?
