Protest of the Day: Students in Chicago are Boycotting Their Terrible School Lunches
Kids in Roosevelt High School on Chicago's Northwest Side have been receiving burnt pizza, rotten fruit and generally unhealthy, unappetizing school lunches. Most people don't get excited about school lunch but this takes it a little too far and the kids at this school decided to do something about it. They've created something called The School Lunch Project: Culinary Denial where they share information about the school's lunch provider Aramark as well as pictures of unsatisfactory lunches like this one:
