I ate school lunches, they tasted good. Sometimes they can be bad but those are a few unlucky days. School lunches didn't improved until my senior year.

please explain what jamie did :3

I remember one time in 5th grade, my class was good so on a friday we didnt get regular pizza. My school ordered us Papa John's pizza. the everyone in the class got 2. I ate 1 but then saved my other slice, i wanted to save it for late, it was very good but this guy wendall slaps my pizza out of my land and it falls facedown under the cafe table, he dives under and starts eating it. I watched him for what felt like hours because i was so shocked as to what the heck was happening, it didn't feel real. He looked me right in my eyes as it ate it and then smiled, still sitting under the table, so i kicked him in the face once, twice, tree times and then he screams so i get up and he tries to crawl out from under the table and i kick him in the face again only the teacher saw that one and i got suspended. life is not fare

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS is what i hear 99% of the time when someone talks about school lunch. or even Mcdonalds. I don't understand why or when it became cool to not like stuff.

They were okay, but the nutritional worth was very questionable. Stews, gumbo, pizza, bread, fruit... a very noticeable lack of vegetables other than lettuce.

The worst had to be the month or so after Hurricane Katrina. They resorted to single slices of stale bread with and almost exclusively rice dishes without sides. Things could have been better...

I'm probably grading this harshly but I'd give them a 3.5/10... When you consider the region they had tough competition when even most of the students could probably cook better food.

We brought our own lunches in elementary school. By high school, there is a cafeteria that sells food along with many restaurants and takeouts in the area, however you could still bring your own.

When I was a child in the Caribbean, I got free school lunches for a while. It was just like home cooking. We got fruit for dessert. Then they realised that it wasn't good for their budget to provide everyone with free lunches. They began to only give them to those who were deprived or from families on a very low income. I went to packed lunch. I moved to a private school and had packed lunch every day except a special occasion when I'd order something from the school tuck shop. The food was good. When I was 12, starting secondary school I stuck to packed lunches. Getting into the school cafeteria was just too hard, too many people and the older teens shoved newbies like me out of the way. They had the nerve to refer to us as kiddies Of course now looking back I could see why they thought that way. The school had youngsters from age 11-20 and held over 1000 students. I swapped to a smaller school eventually but kept the packed lunch habit.

In the UK, I dared to have school meals twice. Yuck! Teachers paired me with a girl from Hong Kong who barely spoke any English. We were the school's foreigners and ethnic minorities. The girl had found out that school lunches was a bad idea before me. I got a hamburger thinking that was safe. I ended up almost puking at the table and the girl tried not to laugh. My siblings, in another school also described school lunches as a horror best avoided. Vegetables got boiled to death, lots of unappealing greasy stuff, woeful stews, cloying puddings and limp salads. She gave me a "I told you so" look. Never again. Packed lunch it was after that.

School lunches weren't really that bad for me. I learned the entrees to avoid and the ones I liked. Don't get me wrong, they were far from good, but it wasn't the horror that some people had. I think the worst part is that it feels like I'm still eating them, even after graduating high school several years ago. The dining facilities I eat at right now are about at that same level, and there isn't really much else for options where I'm at right now...

I went to a small school K-12 school in the country that didn't let you use the cafeteria until you were in Grade 7 or higher. Plus leftover supper was always better than whatever the school had to offer. I'd get something there every so often, if I was lazy and had some spare cash for it but honestly, it was either homemade lunch or I'd drive to the restaurant 15 minutes away once I had my drivers

I seem to recall in primary/elementary school I ate school food about half the time. If you're in a "good" district, the food improves. If you're not, you get subsidized (literally the pizza sellers make it super cheap for the schools and have legislators classify it as a vegetable) frozen pizza.

But my mom was not really a good cook so I've never been picky. Thinking back though, the 'veal patty' I'm slightly doubtful was real beef.

The reason there was any "coolness" was when a school had kids from a more affluent household, and brought "good" stuff like brand-name products that were also terrible for you. Somehow lunchables was classified as cooler than the cafeteria food, even though it's a glut of slime and salt in reality.

EDIT: Really if the majority of people do something, then the minority is either cool or ostracized.
