Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project

I seem to be on a roll with the school lunches lately!  Of course, if you saw what these kids are served in school, you’d know why.  My daughter thanks me just about everyday for packing her a lunch every single day.  She tells me that those school lunches not only look bad, but they smell even worse! 

I was thrilled to come across this blog, written from a teacher in the midwest.  She has decided to eat hot lunches at school every day for a year and blog about it.  She even takes pictures of what she has to eat!  She is doing this anonymously because she fears losing her job, but feels something needs to be done to get better food to our children.  What really got me though, was her guest blogger.  He is a teacher in Japan and describes, in detail, school lunch in Japan.  After his experience as a teacher in America, then going to Japan to teach, he realized that we don’t value education or our children much.  The difference is astounding!  Read for yourself Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project.
