New York School Dumps Michelle Obama’s Lunch Program

Implementation of the new federal guidelines for school lunches is being met with much resistance these days, mainly because the meals being prepared are tasteless and drab and – surprise! – the kids are simply tossing out their vegetables and finding other ways to eat better tasting snacks.

Schalmont High School for example, has tried for two years to make Michelle Obama’s school lunch program more appealing to their students, but to no avail. The upstate New York school estimates they were losing up to $15,000 annually because the kids didn’t like their food options or portion sizes.

Watch the CBS 6 report below:

Via EAG News:

“We basically lost $10,000 to $15,000 a year,” according to Schalmont schools nutritional director Marcy vonMaucher.

To stem the financial loss, the high school is opting out of the program and foregoing the federal reimbursements.

But staying in would have been worse.

“I would have easily lost 40%. That is how restrictive the a la cart rules [are,]” vonMaucher says.

Schalmont joins numerous other New York schools such as Voorheesville – who lost $30,000 in a single quarter – and Niskayuna – who lost over $70,000 in one semester – in ditching the federal lunch program.

The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake school district estimates they lost over $100,000 in a year thanks to the program.
