I am just saying but other schools get better lunches than we do. Ex. Bettendorf has salad bars and pizza everyday as a lunch choice and THEY GET CHICK-FIL-A TUESDAY! We should have a special day out of the week that we have something special so that everyone has something to look forward to. If we have better lunches then more students would go to school. You don’t hear any dropouts saying things like “Oh yeah, but you know what I do miss, our school lunches”. No they say the opposite, “Well at least I don’t have to eat the school lunches anymore, hahahahahaha” said by a student dropout.

I think that the lunch ladies and gentlemen are amazing and really nice people and that it’s not their fault that most of the school’s lunches are inedible. I mean some of them are actually good like the Chicken Sandwiches and the Bosco Sticks but other things like the Grilled Cheese Sandwiches in a bag are not good.

Another thing about other schools that we don’t get to do is leave school during lunch to go get lunch. I understand that we don’t have many places to go to but it’s the thought that counts. Some schools get to doordash food over to their school. I mean maybe we could give everyone a specific day to leave school during the week to go get food so that it is staggered in some way. We don’t have as many students in our school so I feel it wouldn’t be that hard to do. Anyways, our school lunches could be so much better but I mean I guess it’s whatever.
