Cafeteria Catastrophe

IMG_6071When a student goes to eat lunch on a normal day at their high school, they expect to have some type of simple food choice available to them, free of contaminants and, well, mold.

A lot of kids resort to eating school lunches because they don’t want to bring their own, and simply because it tastes better than a day-old PB&J sandwich. But what’s the point of doing that if your food isn’t edible?

Freshman Bailey Schaefermeier talks about her experience at lunch a few days ago.

“I took a bite of the apple I got from the school cafeteria and the inside of the apple looked rotten,” Schaefermeier said. “I looked closer and there was even mold on the stem.”

This is when you ask whether the student should be held accountable for not paying attention to what she’s eating or on the cafeteria workers for serving rotten food and not paying attention to what they serve.

Whoever is at fault, it should be a warning to wherever you are, make sure you pay attention to what you eat.

High school cafeteria workers are busy every day cooking and serving food to hungry teenagers so they might miss if something isn’t right.

Make sure you check your fruits and vegetables before you eat them. Nobody wants to end up with a worm in their apple.
