We have two spine-chilling words for you: Salisbury steak. Maybe you thought you’d never have to think about that gravied mass of edible profanity again. But then you read the school lunch menu. Yes, it’s still out there, and it's headed toward your child’s mouth — or, more likely, the trash can.
Forget about Jaime Oliver's Food Revolution or Alice Waters’s Edible Schoolyard. Forget that the First Lady has been digging up weeds in the White House organic vegetable garden to bring fresh carrots to children in need. Despite these calls for change, the school cafeteria can still be a harrowing place.
Need proof? Check out Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project, a blog chronicling a teacher's gross ‘n’ greasy adventures eating school lunches every day for a year. Hot dog with fries day 129, pizza day 57, and — brace yourself — Salisbury steak with (frozen) pineapple chunks day 10.
