About the blog...

       For many elementary, middle and high school kids all over the country, August means back to school time. This year, though, one big change has been made in schools across the country--lunchtime. In January of 2012, President Obama signed into law the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. According to the USDA website, the . . ."USDA is making the first major changes in school meals in 15 years. . . . " With these changes, students will have quite a different experience when eating lunch. This blog I plan to do over the 2012-2013 school year will hopefully show everyone not currently eating school lunches just exactly what they are about. 
       At least once a week, I hope to upload a picture of a meal served at Beatrice High School, a meal that many students would get.  And at least twice a week, I hope to list what food I ate at school during lunch.  Every so often, I hope to interview staff, administrators, and students and post my findings. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them below!
