A Portsmouth, VA., public school is blaming “poor lighting” for what is being hailed as the worst student lunch ever served.
A mother of a student attending James Hurst Elementary, snapped a photo of her child’s school lunch and posted the abomination to social media. The meal consisted of cooked corn, a fish filet and a bun.
According to the school district’s lunch menu, which is posted online, the lunch choices served Tuesday were the following:
Spicy Cajun Fish w/Brown Rice
Cold Cut Turkey Sub (w/g)
Assorted Chef Salad (Croutons & Crackers)
Steamed Carrots & Side Salad
Fresh Orange or Canned Fruit
1% & Skim Milk
School officials released the following ridiculous statement blaming the rancid meal on poor lighting:
We appreciate this parent’s concern about the presentation of this school lunch. Poor lighting and food presentation make this lunch unappealing. Other lunch options on the day this photo was taken included a chef’s salad and turkey sub sandwiches. The meal in this photo and other meals served by Portsmouth Public Schools meet nutritional and USDA requirements. The presentation of the meal pictured concerns us and we plan to address presentation of food items in a training session with all cafeteria managers. Our goal is to provide healthy food options that students will want to eat. We will take actions to ensure that presentation is addressed.
