A school district in Virginia has admitted concerns over the presentation of a student’s lunch served Tuesday at an elementary school.
Thanks to Michelle Obama’s meddling efforts to destroy the Public School lunch program, school kids all over America are presented with slop like this on a daily basis. Tens of thousands of kids have tweeted their rank disgust with the new system. And while my kids and your kids are served this junk, the Obama children dine on gourmet school lunch fare fit for a king.
PORTSMOUTH, Va. – Dozens of people reached out to WAVY-TV after a student’s mother posted a picture of the meal on social media. It shows cooked corn on a lunch platter, alongside a fish filet with a bun placed on top.
According to Portsmouth Public Schools lunch menu, which is posted online, the lunch choices served Tuesday were the following:
- Spicy Cajun Fish w/Brown Rice
- Cold Cut Turkey Sub (w/g)
- Assorted Chef Salad (Croutons & Crackers)
- Steamed Carrots & Side Salad
- Fresh Orange or Canned Fruit
- 1% & Skim Milk
WAVY-TV contacted Portsmouth Public Schools about the controversy. They released the following statement from Food Service Coordinator Jim Gehlhoff:
We appreciate this parent’s concern about the presentation of this school lunch. Poor lighting and food presentation make this lunch unappealing. Other lunch options on the day this photo was taken included a chef’s salad and turkey sub sandwiches. The meal in this photo and other meals served by Portsmouth Public Schools meet nutritional and USDA requirements. The presentation of the meal pictured concerns us and we plan to address presentation of food items in a training session with all cafeteria managers. Our goal is to provide healthy food options that students will want to eat. We will take actions to ensure that presentation is addressed. source
The Obama’s are better than you, much better
Well now, lunch looks just a tad different at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, where the Obama kids go. This is they type of food they have for lunch there five days a week:
Now there is nothing wrong with feeding your kids the very best, we all want that for our children. But there is something horrifically amiss when you force other people’s children to eat at a level that is markedly below what you give to your kids. One is reminded of Marie Antoinette who, when told her subjects had no bread, famously said “let them eat cake, then“.
Michelle Obama clearly has one standard for her children, a really good standard, and another standard for your children, a really crappy one.
