Make lunches cheaper or bigger

November 27, 2018 — by Alan Zu

Lunches in the cafeteria are small: Macaroni is sold in tiny plastic containers, and soup is in tiny cups. But prices for such items is expensive; for example, salads in regular-sized hot-dog trays go for $4.50.

Whenever I buy lunch, I feel cheated. Because I only have so much money to spend on lunch each day, I am forced to buy the cheapest items in order to have enough to eat.

Recently, the cafeteria began selling half sandwiches for $4 — a further outrage, especially since it used to sell whole ones for the same price.

School lunches should improve in one of two possible ways. Either lunch prices should decrease, or lunch quantities should increase.
