More Students Eating School Lunches In Springfield, Despite Stricter Federal Guidelines

Strict dietary guidelines for student lunches are not driving District 186 students out of the cafeteria. 


Those school lunch rules have come under fire from Congressman Rodney Davis… who says schools are being forced by the feds to serve unpopular foods that are leading kids to simply skip the school lunch.  But the food service director for Springfield public schools says participation is up this year. 


Jan Miller says it does appear that more food is going to waste… especially some less-common varieties of vegetables that schools are required to serve from time to time.  Miller says it’s also more expensive to serve more fresh fruits and vegetables, and federal reimbursements don’t cover all of that increase.
