4 Lunch from home is guaranteed to not be expired

The school would not give you expired food - lbelle0527

True story: I was sitting near some kids at lunch,thankfully with a packed lunch instead of their school ones,and one of them opened their yogurt and found literally MOULD. Yes,GREEN MOULD. When he gave it to the teacher,she acted like it was no big deal and have him another. I was THIS close to calling an inspector...

6 Lunch from home is cheaper

Yep. Back in my elementary school, it would cost 10$ per meal. - Excited

7 You can pack as much as you want from home

Yeah! But if you're in k-5 then I heard the teachers will tell you to stop eating at some point. It's sad, but in middle school you can eat as much as you want with no one to bother you! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 You can pack what you want from home

I had some nasty expired Dominos pizza for lunch. The guy across the table had Subway. I was so jealous.

9 School lunch just wants to make you barf

Once, my Mac and cheese was completely COLD AND OILY! Yes, it was oily. The cheese sauce gathered on the bottom of the cup in clumps. I swore never again to buy the mac and cheese - Haumea

Agreed. They just grab pizza that was in the fridge for two weeks, then throw it in the microwave, and then they just slap it on the tray with some tiny milk jug. - Excited

I used to love the nachos they served but now they did something to it that just tastes awful - PatrickStar

In elementary school we have pizza that is like three times less the size of a pizza slice and the crust is super soggy :(

13 You can finish your lunch faster

I know, right? Some kids in my lunch line think they can get their lunch for free when you have an ID card. This holds up the line.

Best part of lunch is the dessert
