is the food we eat in the school safe when the cafeteria is not clean and the food taste stale due to the way they serve us. becuasse we recieve the same thing everyday and some of us play sports and could use more food

I’m sorry to hear that you feel that your school meals are unsafe. The Student Council might try to get help from the parents (a petition drive for example) then approach your Principal about improving the situation.

Most school lunches are supposed to provide 1/3 of some of the nutrients you need each day (protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A and vitamin C). As an athlete, you use more calories than other kids, and so need to eat more as well, but school meals do not always make allowance for this. Some schools provide an after school snack for students who stay for after school activities, so you might ask about getting this program in your school.
