The US$1,800 school lunch

School lunches are not considered to be high-end cuisine, so I was surprised to see that a school lunch can cost US$1,800 in Houston. Pretty expensive really. But that’s America for you!

A high school student shared part of a lunch with a friend and wound up up costing the school close to $2,000.
A student at Manvel High School near Houston gave another student part of a pizza brought from home.
Sharing food brought from home is a violation of the state's healthy nutrition guidelines for public schools. Because of that, the state agricultural department will not reimburse the school the $1800 lunch cost for that day.
