Students protest the options of FREE LUNCH given at school, BRING OWN FROM HOME for four day boycott!
TIVOLI (AP) - Macaroni and cheese again? Students at a Texas junior high school staged a four-day boycott of cafeteria food last week to press for more menu choices and healthier alternatives.

About 30 students at Austwell-Tivoli Junior High School in Tivoli, Texas, near the Gulf Coast, shunned the cafeteria’s offerings and brought their lunches from home for four days last week, The Victoria Advocate reported over the weekend.

They demanded less menu repetition and more choice in what is served, including salads. President of the seventh-grade class Mckenzi Simmons said “boycott” was a vocabulary word in a recent Texas history class, and that students put what they’d learned into action.

...

Superintendent Antonio Aguirre said his Austwell-Tivoli Independent School District offers free lunch to students and staff because a large portion of the district is deemed low-income by the state.

i found the rationalization of why the students protested (students learned a new word) rather humorous i must say.

I'm sure there was some adult prompting somewhere in this...

I think it is brillant of the 7th grade President to tie his boycott directly to the Curriculum....so people cant call them nutters....

Its funny how one state is taking away home lunches and replacing it with their "healthy lunches" and a bunch of broke ass Texas families would rather go broke than eat the school shit.....

This story is a true representation of the school food programs...the other stories only tell of what the school systems wish the food quality was like....this story tells of the quality....

Good for them....boycott them....how did they learn of such a thing???? from the enemys mouth, of course!!!! LOL

The public school system is a complete joke, I hope those kids bankrupt their school!

Go kids! They are the last hope!

Good for those kids. No one has the right to tell you what you can and cannot eat.
