High School Student Exposes The Horrendous Condition Of Cafeteria, Showing Rotten Food In Schools
June 24, 2019 15:49
A school cafeteria has never been the fanciest of restaurants, but a recent revelation from a student via an Instagram account dedicated to chronicle the meals served by school cafeterias have us churning.
Amber Christensen is the creator of the Instagram account @ikeprisonfood, which is aimed at drawing the attention of the public to the nasty meals served in schools.
Amber is a junior at Eisenhower High School, and she got the inspiration for the account when she was served Salisbury steak at her school, and later fell sick.
While speaking to CBS, Amber’s mum, Mandy Silva, revealed that her daughter was ‘violently sick’ as a result of the meal. Silva and Amber reported to the school management, but they said they couldn’t do anything about it as the school lunch program follows a strict guideline.
That was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and Amber decided that she had to do something to make it stop. She opened @ikeprisonfood.
The page sees entries of several disgusting meals, from rotten fruits to bugs in sandwiches. It was created as a means for her to vent her anger, but it soon gained recognition, especially from the school administration.
District 218 superintendent Ty Harding became aware of the social media account and mentioned in a statement that the cafeteria team, school management, and students had a meeting to discuss the issue.
Amber explains that things are already improving, but that she won’t stop posting until she is confident that the improvements are here to stay.
What a way to effect positive change in her own little way! A big thumbs up to Amber on her innovative idea!
