    The school food better have improved since I was in elementary school, where is was so bad that the smell of it in the cafeteria was often enough to turn me off my brown bagged lunch from home. No one except the kids who gt free lunches ate the school food, and even they wasted a lot of it. It gave slop a good name by comparison. I bet they serve better food in prisons.

    And there were no vending machines selling Twinkies, HoHos or anything else . This was in the 1950s.

      Metro ATL, 1990.  

      Wrinkled hotdogs we joked couldn't possibly have anything useful in them. Tuna in the chef salad trays and you had no clue how old it was. Pizza on bread with holes in it with low-fat crud mozzarella and square pieces of pepperoni.

      They fed that pizza to us at Rock Eagle at the 2001 Junior Classical League spring conference and practically had a revolt in the cafeteria. We got out of the fifth grade to get away from that stuff, damnit! I lived out of the vending machines for the weekend - I don't know what people who hadn't brought lots of pocket money ended up doing, but my diet was almost entirely peanut M&Ms.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
