More Food Going to Waste at Springfield Middle and High Schools


Contrary to claims from Congressman Rodney Davis, the head of food service for District 186 says tighter federal rules on school lunch menus has not caused students to stop eating in the cafeteria.

 

In fact, Jan Miller says participation in the school lunch program is higher this year.

 

But Miller agrees with Davis that more food may be going to waste as students… especially in the middle and high schools… turn their noses up at less familiar vegetables that schools are now required to serve periodically.

 

Miller says the requirement to provide more fresh fruit and vegetables has driven up costs… and higher federal reimbursements don’t cover all of the increase.
