John. I agree. We will do everything in our power to make sure we too have those functional conforming little trays that every country seems to have the exact same of in this video.

Yes, you could look at the quality of the pictures -OR- you could look at the contents the pictures and think about what a typical US school lunch actually consists of. Either way.

While those are certainly good looking lunches from an adult perspective, I seriously doubt that the majority of PR-Niles kids would be real happy with them.

On more serious note. Voting in Hot lunch was a good step towards adding value to our districts schools. However, the real value will be added when we can make all the necessary repairs that our schools so badly need. Get our buildings up to a worthy standard and then keep with a maintenance plan to keep them in good repair moving forward. No more deferred maintenance and kicking the bill down the line to the next boards. Simultaneously, and with the cooperation of our teachers, administration and taxpayers, we need to come up with a way to not only continue the quality education we provide, but strive to do even better. It is our responsibility to send D207 the best students we can. Regardless of what anyone says, we should never feel we are doing good enough. I don't put a ton of weight on rankings, but let's be truthful, they have some value. It is always be better to be included in the highest rankings and then discount their relevance, than it is to be left out of those high rankings and discount their relevance.

While I understand the jokes (no one will ever accuse me of not having a sense of humor) and notion that kids won't eat this stuff and I know the vendor has been chosen, I ran across this company recently and thought their menus were a good compromise between healthy and kid-friendly. They are also sustainability- and cost-conscious. http://revolutionfoods.com/in-schools/

Hopefully no child will be denied lunch because they don't have money in their account!
