Lunch: the time to socialize, eat, and catch up on homework due next hour.
Each year brings about much change, and this year's school's lunches have been quite the change. Lunch food has always had its ups and downs, from the dark days of flat small cinnamon rolls to the glory days of Salisbury Steak, students have muscled through the line in search of nourishment and nutrition.
We polled several students around the lunchroom to ask what their favorite and least favorite lunch was. The results were interesting. Salisbury steak is the most popular lunch with Country Fried Steak in a close second and Pizza in third. The rest of the results were a mixed bag of different lunches including nachos and tacos.
This year also saw the introduction of fresh salads to the menu and a redesigned salad bar, which is quite delicious if you have not had a chance to grab one.
We also collected data from students for their least favorite lunches. As far as we an tell, the least favorite lunch goes to the hot ham and cheese. Second place was the popcorn chicken bowl, and third was hamburgers.
One thing that we did find out was that no matter what the lunch was, they had a positive experience at lunch time. Almost every student that was asked reported that they enjoyed going through the lunch line and being greeted by the amazing cooks who prepare our food on a daily basis. From Mr. Viele greeting students as they enter and leave the lunch room, to the cooks getting food out fast with a smile on their faces, to Mr. Myers greeting them at the lunch counter, students reported that they enjoyed the process of going through the line and getting around to their lunch tables.
