The cafeteria food is generally all very bland and does not look appetizing whatsoever. Most students buy the brand-name snack and drinks when offered, such as Sunchips and Gatorade. Our school's culinary teacher used to run a cafe here. Students could purchase fresh doughnuts for $1 in the morning, lemonade or tea throughout the school day, or pre-order chicken tenders, salads, or a number of other meals for lunch. These foods were all freshly cooked and taste was satisfactory. This year however, our principle decided to shut down the culinary cafe, in fear that it was "competition against the cafeteria." Students were outraged! Many often choose to bring their own lunch, buy store-bought chips and cookies from the cafeteria, or just not eat lunch at all. Honestly, I would choose not eating over our cafeteria's "steak sandwich," which looks more like burnt pieces of meatloaf on soggy buns.
