This school year is the first year all California public schools will get free lunch meals. California is one of the first states to give all school students access to free lunch with no additional costs. Over time, the school lunch has changed, and some can argue that it’s changed for the better, while others may say that they see no change at all. Due to nutrition requirements, five components must be served at lunch: fruit, vegetables, meat/meat alternatives, grains, and milk. California districts are upgrading meals and using healthier ingredients than in previous years. This school year, we’ve been served meals we haven’t seen before, such as pasta, bacon burgers, mac & cheese, etc. This is all due to the federal funding to expand school meals for students. Students were asked their opinion regarding the new lunch meals, and here is what some had to say.

Have you noticed a change in the school lunch?
Yes, it’s been tasting much better, like it’s less healthy.
What has been your favorite school meal so far?
My favorite meal has been the nachos from September 21st. They taste so good- even better than Taco Bell’s Nachos BellGrande.

Have you noticed a change in the school lunch?
No, I haven’t seen any changes at all. We just get the same thing probably like three times a week. I don’t want a chicken sandwich every day.
What has been your favorite school meal so far?
Cereal in the morning is all I eat from school. That’s it.

No, because it’s still nasty.
What has been your favorite school meal so far?
Probably just the cereal because that’s the only good thing.
Klarissa Manrriquez– sophomore
Have you noticed a change in the school lunch?
I have seen a change because I see some new foods that weren’t here last year and new juices.
What has been your favorite school meal so far?
My favorite meal is the cheese bites with the marinara sauce because it tastes really good, and it’s even better now that there is the sauce to dip it in.
Nisiah Martinez– senior
Have you noticed a change in the school lunch?
Yes, especially in the chicken sandwiches because the chicken is starting to look better.
What has been your favorite school meal so far?
My favorite meal has been the chicken sandwiches because they are starting to taste like Chick-fil-A.
