“It’s Heartbreaking”, School Board Members Get To Eat Michelle Obama Lunch

I’ve been out of school for a while and my school lunch used to consist of two brownies and a fruit punch, so stories like this always confuse me.  That said, in looking at this picture, ewwwwww.

School district administrators in Denver recently got a taste of what students have been complaining about: a school lunch with a cold chicken patty on a rock-hard burnt bun, frozen strawberries and a “really hard” pear.

That was the meal served to school board member Rosemary Rodriguez at Kepner Middle School in Denver May 12, after Kepner student Stephanie Torres took her complaints about the food to the school board, Chalkbeat.org reports.

“It’s heartbreaking,” Padres health justice organizer Monica Acosta said of the lunch prepared under federal food guidelines championed by first lady Michelle Obama. “That’s the type of food Kepner students have been having all year long.”
