I'm a vegetarian, so I brought my own lunch everyday for all four years of high-school. I heard many the complaint about the school food everyday as well, but there were plenty of other times when the football boys would all get seconds and sometimes thirds. Snacks weren't even a thing at our school, unless of course you brought your own and then just ate them during class. There was always a vegetable option and some fruit with the meals, so kids had the opportunity to eat a little healthy and balance out the shrimp poppers, but obviously, not every person wants to eat those things. As I also remember, there wasn't a special diet option, so I think most individuals that had any sort of special diet requirements just supplied their own meals.
I like how the entire Mid-Prairie district is a community and is like a second family away from home.
