    NJ High School Students Are Planning A Cafeteria Boycott Over Reduced Portion Sizes « CBS New York

    PARSIPPANY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Students at Parsippany Hills High School held a strategy session on Thursday to discuss a potential lunch strike, on Friday, over what they have called inadequately sized meals.

    “This year you’re eating lunch and you’re like ‘Did I even eat?’ You’re not even full,” senior Brandon Faris told CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis.

    New federal guidelines stemming from first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign have resulted in limits on protein and bread, and an increase in vegetables and fruits. The changes have also come at an increased cost.

    All of it has also sparked a student campaign that has included online parody videos of students falling sleep in class and performing sluggishly in sports.

    They hope to further their efforts with a cafeteria boycott that will cost the school money, and students like Faris said they want to know why they are paying the price for other people’s problems.

    Just bring lunch from home. I rarely ever ate the food in the school cafeteria. It was nasty and unhealthy.

    But they know better than the kids and their parents and you what's best for the kids.

    Just ask them.

    Can't. The School Food Gestapo will demand it be searched and, if necessary, confiscated.
