Opinion: Sloppy with no chance of a food fight at LAHS

FOOD FIGHT! … or not? What happened to the creamy cafeteria food, starchy lunch ladies and messy food fights? Isn’t that what a lunchtime experience at high school is all about? As a high school student, I can tell you that we are seriously being deprived.

Due to the giant hole and construction zone in the middle of our school, we have no place to eat lunch. Hallways to run around in are scarce, rodent problems have prohibited food in classrooms and what used to be the cafeteria has been invaded by desks and books. One might assume that school administrators think learning is more important than lunch.

We don’t even have bullies to steal our lunch money — something that builds character and prepares us for the real world. Furthermore, it doesn’t help that the surrounding area provides few places to buy lunch. Freshmen and sophomores who don’t yet have a sweet ride can’t escape far from the campus. Nearby options include a gas station, the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos cafeteria, Nanak subs and once or twice a week, a couple of generous churches provide free food for high school students.
