Our Media Intern, Mariam, sat down with Alia, a freshman at Evergreen High School to talk about school lunch and her FEEST experience.
A: At school today, I ate a cheese pizza and French fries. The cheese on the pizza tasted really weird. It was almost like it was plastic; it wasn’t melted fully and it wasn’t cooked properly. The fries were oily and hard like potato chips. It tasted like the oil was old, like it was reused.
Q: What do you think the pizza was made of?
A: I think the pizza was made of bread and some kind of sauce. It was really nasty. I wasn’t really sure at all what it was made from. I felt weird that I didn’t know what it was but I was eating it.
Q: What did we eat at FEEST and how was it different from today’s lunch?
A: We ate a vegetable soup, a salad, omelets, fried rice and there was also a smoothie! It was fun because we did it from our own hands. It’s so different from the school, because we don’t know what we are eating and I knew exactly what was in the dishes at FEEST.
