The lunch lady is an indelible figure in our childhood memories. She may have been a little gruff and world-weary but serving screaming kids lunch is a thankless task so who can blame her? What shouldn’t escape blame, however, is the food itself. The word food may actually be too generous for the various iterations of slop and loaf that a school kid encounters when pushing their tray down that grim line.
For every glorious Pizza Friday there are days where the food is unrecognizable at best and indigestible at worst.
