It's a fact, some countries have laws where schools have to serve students food in school... And other countries have no such laws and then it often ends up with the students having to pay for the food,

Hence the question, do you live in a country where schools must serve food for free to the students. If yes, then what do you think about the food they serve? If not, then do you think it's good that you have t pay or is it bad that you have to pay?


Anyhow, I live in Sweden a country that have free food in schools. And let me tell you something rather funny, the government have a law that forces schools to give out food of atleast 9SEK (around 1.5$) per student. And of cource, some schools refuse to pay a single cent more for the food and others go out and pay the extra fee to make quality food for their students.

I go in Fryshuset, a school that pays out extra for quality food. And about a year ago, then the cooks got so pissed off at some people for leaving food behind on the tables so that they had to pick up for them. So what did they do? Well... They, started to remove stuff that people liked and throw in a shit tone of salt into the food they served... And this in turn led to people stopping to eat there and simply go to the restaurants outside. And restaurants are business so they did the logical thing, by putting up big advertisement posters outside the school where students would see them and advertisement lines like "Want quality food then come to us". And well, this had now been going on for a while... Infact, the school is starting to get pissed at the restaurants for advertising outside the school and have now threaten to take the restaurants including Subway and McDonald's to court if they don't stop to advertise outside the school.

Here's an extra question, what do you think about the situation in my school?

am glad my school's food wasn't free. free food usually tastes like shit, e.g. hospital food.




In response to your school's situation; I think it's wrong for school to advertise... anything... commercial :-/

Mine was free as my mom qualified for it as we were pretty much poor. The free food was the same as everyone else at my school just had a card I had to show to the lunch ladies. Menu: pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh ( yes fresh as they were made when ordered) fries, bread sticks, various sandwiches, salads, fruits, veggies, chips, nachos, milk, juice, soda, cookies, pudding, jello. Food was very good c:

Well, I'm from Sweden too and when I still was in school I got my lunch for free also. Though I wouldn't mind to pay a bit to get good quality food. It was damn disgusting most of the time. It didn't look appealing at all. The only dishes that were somewhat acceptable was hamburgers, hot dogs and tacos. I suppose I got what I paid for.

I'm not sure if you misunderstood me or if I wasn't clear with my writing.

But what I said in short was that the school had horrible food after the cooks being pissed at the few students who left food on the tables, and so they put in an overdose of salt and other things to make the food so unpleasantries that you just couldn't eat it. So people went to restaurants outside so that they could get some food in them since everyone refused to eat the crap that the school served. And now restaurants have popped up adds on böildings outside the school with the intent of students seeing them as fast as they just look out the windows of the school. And now the school is pissed at this so they are threatening to take the companies who placed advertisement there (Subway and McDonald's are among the companies who put up ads there)

Nah I'm at a charter school. Because we'd not considered part of a "public independent school district" our funding is squat so we have to bring our own lunches.

in that case, I don't think it's wrong. I don't think the school has a case if it's not on their property or proximity.

The problem with Sweden is that the Swedish government looks at everyone as equals and thinks that people don't have the money to pay for food and other things. And this is why they have laws in place that forbids schools from taking money from students in any way shape or form. I too wouldn't have had any problems what so ever with them taking a bit of money for the food. And then we've also got the fact that they only are willing to give out 9:- for the food they serve, it's totally uneatable... This doesn't even look remotely eatable.

Either the school should stop carrying lunches, (based on the comments above), or get a better cook.ideally, it wouldn't be allowed for the restaurants to use the school as marketing or advertising as well.

Ideally, the restaurants need to butt out of the schools role in providing education and apparently food.

The students should have a right to voice what they like or dislike on the menu. the cook, should, have thick enough skin to roll with the punches. The students who STILL want to go to the restaurants should be able to.

Truth be told food is food, by some standards the school lunches which were served in our cafeteria was considered pretty bad, it was the same type of lunches they served us when I went to Elementary and middle school, so it was basically a company which provided the whole district with the food. Everything was frozen and reheated at the school, but it didn't really taste all that bad. As for the situation you have, back in high school we had restaurants selling in our courtyard and so a portion of the proceeds would go to the school, it was pretty nice, and it would be good for your school to do the same, it seems kinda dumb to try and take these guys to court when there is a better solution out there

The free food given out at my high school wasn't that bad
If you didn't like the food you could leave the campus and go eat at a restaurant
