Top Ten Reasons to Hate School Lunch

School lunch was never fresh and healthy to eat. Students waste more food at school than in school becuase of the quality. Here is the reasons why school lunches is terrible!

The Top Ten Reasons to Hate School Lunch

They buy packaged food instead of ingredients to cook.


Well, you can't blame them for not having the time to cook for 3,000 kids every day. I don't love school lunches, but we should be thankful that they feed us anyway. - Garythesnail

They just use frozen dry burgers st my school

It was never healthy

Breakfast is just pure sugar. Elementary kids have like 50 grams of sugar IN THE MORNING ALONE! I'm an adult, and I can't even have 10% of the sugar that's in their breakfast FOR AN ENTIRE DAY. (I have high blood sugar so I have to monitor my sugar intake)

It's just rubber chicken nuggets

That is so true

While I agree with Garythesnail about the cooking thing, our school doesn't even try to be healthy. Our main meal we get is cheese-filled breadsticks. Some people get these every day, and I think these should be discontinued as people only eat the breadsticks considering the side carrots bounce. - pandagirl

Cafeteria workers are too lazy to cook

They gave me a 2 day old hamburger so I never ate school lunch again

Too lazy to cook for thousands of kids? Each DAY? If you've got such a big problem, bring a lunchbox. Their jobs are harder than you think. - Garythesnail

Tye school lunch may not be good,but I disagree with this. - cosmo

It can make you sick

There was this girl who got food poisoning when she ate the lunch

People went home sick from the soup that my school served..

I ate a hot dog with chilli that was nice until I was almost finished then I felt like I was gonna throw up. Then I knew I had to see a military recruiter at 3PM that day so I clenched my fist and shrugged the feeling away.

One of my friends said her "cousin" found a gnat in her salad. And another friend said she found a toenail in her food, but the lunch lady said it was a pear. Also, my close friend's siblings threw up from the pizza they serve. Finally, some of my friends think there are worms in the applesauce, but it's just cinnamon. - Powerfulgirl10

It has no flavor in it

The mashed potatoes they serve at my school are half flavorless and also dry on some parts. - Powerfulgirl10

You need to pay to get better food

The food is expensive
Lets compare!
1 small soda from school : $1.50
1 big pack of soda from the store: $4.00
1 brownie from school: $1.00
1 packet of brownies: $2.00

At my school, we usually don't have to pay for anything we eat. - Powerfulgirl10

It's very disgusting

Here in Finland, the chicken is so flavourless, that you can't if it is chicken or soft wood. And the sauce is as thick as glue plus the potatoes might have some black stuff inside.

I remember once seeing some blood on s burger...

Exactly. Everyone at my school like the pizza, which is waaay to cheesy and waaay too salty. Then they made fun of me for getting a hot dog...Stupid classmates. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Vegetables and fruit don't taste very fresh

I refuse to eat bananas from school. They are always overripe. I hate overripe bananas, they make me retch.

I used to like the school's tangerines, but now they taste too juicy and sweet. They are also more orange than the sun because they're fake. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

And neither does there milk - NESSquid

Its always canned junk and not good and fresh fruits and veggie'sc - RevolNiartRuasonid

You can throw up easily
It's not enough food

Turkey Twizzlers anyone?

The Contenders

They force you to finish it

My high school doesn't do this

Same thing at my elementary! I've seen kids THROW AWAY WHOLE MEALS and not get in any type of trouble! - mcdonalds_sucks

Just refuse. What can they do, kill you? Yell at you? Then just leave. I'm just trying to help people stand up for themselves.

One of my friends from first to third grade said at another school, se had to be forced to eat all of the food they serve. I mean, kids get FULL, you can't force them to fill up their bellies. - Powerfulgirl10

This happened to my friend.

Emily: Can I please leave?

Dinner lady: Do you not like your sorbet?

Emily: No, I've never really liked it…

Dinner lady: Eat it.

Emily: But I feel really ill…

Dinner lady: YOU MUST EAT IT!

The food is fake

Ikr! One day when I was lined up ready to be served garbage, I seen what actually happens behind the scenes. They don't even cook the food! So it was friday, and it was pizza. I saw them take the rectangular pizza in the box out of a moldy fridge! Then when I ate it, the top of the cheese came off and it was nothing but hard, nasty crust on the bottom and it smelled rotten. I wanted to throw up!

They lie and call the chicken sandwich Chick fil a sandwich in my old school but it was nothing like it and Grey meat. They should be sued for copying the name first of all. Second, it was definitely not from chick fil a you liars you just said that to get kids money.

Tastes like mcdonald's food, but worse

The food may be bad, but at least McDonald’s has flavor.

Pink slime
Pig meals and sloppys

good meal

Potatoes are rubber
They only bother cooking better at Christmas
Old food
They buy food from a restaurant and serve it and claim it as their own
Gross kitchen, appliances
Portion Sizes

My school at least makes a good orange chicken but the portion size is the equivalent to a racist kid (who thinks asians are inferior) who hates asian food

Ban of Turkey Twizzlers
Too much sugar in breakfast
