No hot school lunch? What?! During this Thursday’s school lunch hours, hot lunch was unable to be served.
Many lunch staff members were in complete shock when the burners would not ignite. The burners are meant to maintain the temperature of the food. In order for the food to stay hot, the burners are needed throughout the process of serving lunch periods four through eight.
“Right after Tuesday’s lunch hours, the electricians came in to fix the wiring. But when we were getting ready to start heating up the hot lunch today, the burners weren’t turning on and we were left with no choice but to serve cold deli lunch,” said Lisa a cafeteria staff member.
The wiring of the burners is currently not working.
To decrease the wait time of serving only cold lunches, the staff decided to make two deli lines which helped dramatically.
Since there wasn’t any hot lunch being served to any of the students and staff, school lunch buyers were obligated to buy a sandwich, which is more expensive than the hot lunch. “I think it’s totally fair for students to pay the normal price for sandwiches,” exclaimed Lauren Schneider. Normal price for hot lunch is $2.75, while cold deli sandwiches are $3.75.
“We’re not exactly sure when the wiring of the burners will be fixed, but we are hoping soon for them to make some progress,” said Dante, a cafeteria staff member.
