Food For Thought

Submitted by Adam Tang, Junior
Although the government is aiming to protect students through their new regulations on school lunches, they – in my opinion – are clearly not succeeding. Because it is unpractical to change the mandates of the government, students should come up with more feasible plans to combat the dreadful issue of school lunch.
I myself have begun to bring in my own lunch because of my distaste for the cafeteria food. By doing this, I get the food and energy I require throughout the school day. Many of my friends have been doing the same. Also, the cafeteria could make some changes that are legal under state law: cheaper costs, more variety of foods, and better quality fruits and vegetables.
All in all, if the government is not going to change their policies, the school must work with what it can to better please the students.
