For some time now airline food and the school cafeteria menu conjured up the same thought
Yuck! While officials argue if the lunches students eat meet basic Food Pyramid standards or they're just the cuisine equivalent of a quick fix, The Township Journal went to the real experts - the students - to dish out the real truth behind the cafeteria doors. "The french fries and chicken are really good, but I'd love to see real pizza brought in from a local pizzeria." Denise Radeloff "I don't really eat at the cafeteria, but I will say that the cookies are the greatest." Evan Jelly "I think we could use more variety, some changes in the daily specials. I think the food is OK though, but I do use the vending machines a lot even though I know they're not the healthiest food to eat." Nicky Skinner "There are two lines in our cafeteria. One was the a la carte line which I think was too expensive for what you got, and the other was more reasonably priced but had less of a selection. Overall the food was all right." Mike Fitzpatrick: Sparta High School also makes various vending machines available to the students, serving among other things lemonade, Gatorade, Yoohoos, ice tea, and yes, they even soda, shhh. Sparta also has a school store where candy and various school items are for sale.
