"I'm a pediatrician. If I have patients with health issues, I am currently not able to recommend that they buy lunch in the school cafeteria. The food that I've seen in the elementary school was unappetizing and a fair amount of it ended up in the trash. It is a shame and a huge waste of an opportunity."
