Their are students that don't eat anything until they get to school. And they do not want to eat vegetables and fruits and that is it. then you will have students that will not even buy a lunch at all because there is nothing that they like, because it is all healthy food. Kids already complain about how they took all of the good food out of our schools, and you want to make it all healthy? A lunch can only be so healthy before you do not get all of the ingredients your body needs to survive.
“Fifty percent of all child deaths are involved in undernourishment”(‘Facts About Hunger And Poverty’). Fifty percent is a huge number, especially when it comes to child deaths. Many people do not pay attention to their surroundings and often do not care that there are people in this world who are dying because of hunger. World Hunger all around our planet is mainly caused by food wastage, but by remembering to not waste after eating, can change everything. World Hunger around the earth is resulting in many people suffering and even dying.
Students just wish that food was up to their liking instead of the standards that were given the school. Lunches never give out the good cookie anymores and students really don’t like cornbread that goes with majority of the
Some examples would be Obesity, the lack of nutrients a child needs, and the influx of chemicals that come with the eating of fast food (Lombardo, ?8 Monumental Pros??). These are problems because America has been fighting against child obesity for years and having open campus lunches near all of these fast food chains and unhealthy food choices would combat the work of the movements against obesity. This is very important because the health of a child affects how the child behaves, learns, and communicates (Lombardo, ?Top 7 Pros and Cons?.?). Studies show that overweight students tend to have more problems with learning and paying attention (Miura). Many parents also fear that children would have the chance to skip school of get into drugs and alcohol while they are loose for their lunch break.
People have tried and failed to stay fit and healthy due to their desk-bound lifestyle and hunger for cheap, fast, and unhealthy food. The current system we have in high school students ' lunch is in need of revision. I plan to clear up the problems we currently face, and the ways we can mend it. The problems we have are the funds for foods, the actual food itself, and the low budget kitchens, The first issue is the money the schools are given to provide healthy lunches for students. The budget is insufficient to provide healthy foods.
They offer a replacement to the regular school lunches, and some kids find themselves skipping out on the school provided lunch options altogether (“Junk Food in Schools”). The USDA places some restrictions on competitive foods, requiring them to “contain at least five percent of the recommended daily allowance of a number of specific nutrients, including protein and certain vitamins” (“Junk Food in Schools”). These restrictions seem to be unpopular because they limit some schools from selling chewing gum or breath mints (because they lack nutrients), but they can sell candy and french fries (“Junk Food in Schools”). This system seems quite unkempt and
Last year, over 5,000 athletes had somebody else do their homework, and coaches encouraged it. Colleges generally spend 79 million dollars each year on sports, and even after The Syracuse Scandal and other academic frauds, the funding only continues to grow. Since the colleges pour large funds into the teams, the athletes often are able to cut corners in education. College sports are definitely a terrible investment for universities as they discourage education, drain university funds, and gives athletes unfair advantages over everyone else. Intercollegiate sports discourage education for the athletes, which is often not beneficial to the athletes themselves.
It’s horrendous that while living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world we still see children starving. “One in six youngsters are at a risk of hunger because of limited or uncertain access to nutritious food” (“An Invisible Hunger”). This shows that countless houses in the U.S don’t have the basic essentials to feed a child. There are millions of ravenous kids in the U.S and there are very catastrophic effects because of this. “More than 17 million children are suffering from hunger in the U.S” (“Ending Childhood Hunger in America”).
Stress and Coping Stress is an interesting subject for me. It seems to me that my entire life I have experienced copious amounts of stress. So much so, that I rarely realize that many things I find normal are highly abnormal to many other people. However, with the end of the semester quickly approaching I have noticed my stress escalating to noticeable level. My three biggest stressors right now are my grades, money, and my living situation.
1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background: World Hunger The term Hunger has three meanings according to (Oxford English Dictionary, 1971. ), it is said to be the uneasy or painful sensation caused by want of food; craving appetite. Also the exhausted condition caused by want of food, the want or scarcity of food in a country and a strong desire or craving. The reason I choose this topic it is because every time in the news we see, hear about countries that are fighting against each other for their reasons, this has a huge impact in lack of infrastructure, losing our beloved ones but most importantly not having anything to eat, which will lead to hunger.
Like paying a fee that would be lesser then paying a travel fee with the NTU vans that charge so much to pick students up at a given time. Using the Navajo Transit bus seems more cost worthy then taking the NTU van for a semester. Some students do say that the NTU bus is expensive to be riding and waiting all day for it to leave is a hassle. Most students just have one class or so, then have to wait all day just to leave in the evening at five o’clock. Will the up side to staying all day would be to do your work all day and get all your study time in.
I have many cons on why close campus is a bad idea. The food at the school is not very good. Yes, it is edible but not very tasty. Not only food but students need time away from school. So they can relax and get ready for the second half of school.
At school, I expect a good lunch everyday day and something that will make me full too. School lunch cost way too much for so little amount of food that we get. It ridiculous, because on the days I am hungry at school, I have to spend over $4.00 everyday just to get a decent meal. I hate when we always have the same food every week. They never make any changes to the school lunch.
Both food insecurity and nutritional status are considered and are large reasons for the existence of the program. This program provides assistance for those that are food insecure and the foods provided in the food boxes each month attempts to improve nutritional status with the choice of food items and by providing select fresh produce for the month alongside the food box. These items are distributed on a monthly basis at a given location. The program had its ups and downs due to small difficulties like transportation for families, information of the program and its location. The back pack buddies was a terrific experience as a student to get involved with the local community and reach out to these families.
I don’t have time for a job, I am not even eligible because of age restrictions, and I can’t drive. So what do I do when I need money? Just ask my mom or dad for it, that teaches me nothing. Considering I spend most of my time focused on school it would make sense to get some sort of income for doing so. The money saved up could be used for college, that could help the less fortunate that didn’t even see college as an option for them.
