When I was still teaching at a public school, a lunch lady overheard me making fun of the cafeteria cuisine and proceeded to march me right into the kitchen so I’d have a better understanding of what sort of hell they had to go through daily to feed thousands of children each day. After seeing the giant Irene-sized pressure cooker, I never uttered another word of derision about school lunch again.

Well, the Catholic school I was enrolled in didn’t have a hot lunch program, but that didn’t keep me from painting these kids in their polyester school togs!
