    Do you ever wonder what the life of a school lunch employee is like? Just imagine how much preparing and planning goes into making your school lunch. Everything that you haven’t thought of, think about it now. Things like how many lunches are sold, how many pounds of food are served to you in a week, and what goes into planning a meal.

      Well let’s start with the time. Workers come in from 6 in the morning planning and preparing breakfast. They start cooking at 6:15 and will try to have everything hot and ready for you at 7. After that of course is lunch. They don’t start planning until 9 and start cooking at 9:30. But they still have the food cooking on low so it’s still hot for B lunch. Here at SBHS, the cost of lunch is $2.50 per student and $2.75 for adults. At the end of the year they sell over 1,000 lunches.

        When they cook these meals, all of it is hand made. It doesn’t come already made, everything that is served to you is made from scratch. A lot goes into planning your meals because they have figure out what they are going to cook, how long it’s going to take, and what they need to make the food. Each meal that they make weighs about 1 to 2 pounds. A lot of effort goes into making and planning them. “We put our pride into making your food,” said Sandra Scott, chief chef at South Broward.

       So as you can tell, a lot goes into making and preparing your school lunches. Although it’s a lot to do, “At the end of the day we are happy and we say we did it.” said Adriana Pouziano, the manager.
