School lunch has always been a hot topic of discussion, especially when it comes to the quality of lunch. We asked a group of seniors some questions about lunch, the purpose of these questions was to find out what the students think should be changed, added, or removed.
One pressing question we had for seniors was; is the food this year better than the food from last year? Sarah Gordon, said that they thought it was about the same quality as last year, while everyone else at the lunch table said that they thought the food was decent. One suggestion from Sarah Gordon was for the cafeteria to provide taste tests for students to try and give feedback on the food.
The next question we asked was, ¨Do you think the food is healthy?” Sarah replied, ¨No but we think that they are trying to make it better.¨ Recently, WHS has started to offer a program called student choice, and many of these choices are fairly healthy. For example, with student choice you can now order different types of burgers including regular, bean, chicken, etc.
Two seniors Alyssa Pearce and Lucyne Grigorian, agreed that increasing the duration of lunch would be a positive change. The seniors agreed that lunch should be about 10 minutes longer because often times, the lines to get food are very long. Adding an additional 10 minutes to lunch would allow for students to have time to get their food, and finish eating.
We’ve come to the conclusion that although WHS school lunches are decent, there are definitely some improvements to be made.
