I care about school lunches. I don’t think they are adequate. The don’t provide students nutrients that they need. Because of their poor quality have caused major losses in school revenue. I arrived at this topic because the school lunches provided at my school are sub par. I have learned so far that poor school lunches cause a snowball effect of schools losing money, making them unable to provide good lunches, losing them money and so on and so forth. I have also learned that in foreign countries they invest more into school lunches causing the reverse effect. Their lunches also provide more nutrients for students. I would like to learn more about solutions and find more quantitative data about school lunches.

 

Here are some sources I looked at:
