There has been an ongoing problem at Furr High School: Our lunch food does not satisfy us enough to last throughout the day.
One of the many problems is the quality of the food. Some students find their food to be cold, tasteless, or even with ingredients that do not belong, such as hair particles. One of the many Furr students said and I quote “ It taste like more than tofu than chicken”.
In the spring semester of 2014, our school introduced a sandwich line. The sandwich line consisted of two types of bread (sub and regular loaf), three types of meat (turkey, ham, and bologna), and three fixings (peppers, lettuce, and pickles). At first, it seemed promising, but it isn’t as satisfactory as they originally made it out to be.
By the third month of the sandwich line being fully functional, the quality of the food started to degrade. While we used to be able to choose among three different meats, now we can only choose one, and the only fixings available are pickles.
This situation has been going on for years, and I believe that it needs to be dealt with in a swift and professional way. My school needs to take this in consideration and then to do something about it–not just say it but mean it. Whether they know it or not, it is affecting students in so many different ways. I just want to be heard.
