    Democrat leaders refused to participate in a working lunch with President Donald Trump on Jan. 15, instead boycotting the meeting amid the ongoing partial government shutdown. ADVERTISING Democrats summarily rejected invitations for the lunch, the White House said. The president still held the lunch, meeting with nine House Republicans: Reps. Susan Brooks (Ind.), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Doug Collins (Ga.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Jodey Arrington (Texas), Van Taylor (Texas), and Clay Higgins (La.).

    What I hear when you tell me my food is “strong smelling” Before I left my home in Mumbai to study in the Netherlands, I thought the idea of cultural appropriation of food was outright bogus. I was working as a food writer for a startup back then, and I often wrote about new restaurants serving foreign food across the city. I believed that food was a way to bring people across the world closer to one another. I believed that everyone was free to eat, cook, write about, and sell whatever food they wanted to. I still do. Things...

    Researchers study a pilot program in New York City and conclude that giving students water with school lunches could significantly reduce childhood obesity. There might be an easy way to reduce the rates of childhood and adult obesity in the United States. Serve water with school lunches. That’s the finding of a study from the University of Illinois. Researchers say they concluded that encouraging students to drink water during lunch could prevent more than half a million young people in the United States from becoming overweight or obese. That, in turn, could reduce associated medical and societal costs by $13...
  • There is only one correct time to eat Thanksgiving dinner

    The right time to eat Thanksgiving dinner is 4pm. This gives the host enough time to prepare all the things they left until the last minute like the tossed salad no one wants and the cranberry sauce no one eats. It gives them enough time to decide at the last minute to make a green bean casserole because they’ve had a panic that there’s not going to be enough food.

    Trump admin provides flexibility from Michelle Obama lunch! The Trump administration is allowing kids 300 more milligrams of salt in their school lunches. In one of his first acts as secretary of agriculture, Sonny Perdue announced his department was moving to "Make School Meals Great Again" by giving schools greater flexibility in complying with former First Lady Michelle Obama's lunch rules. Perdue, the former governor of Georgia, announced the changes on Monday during a visit to a Virginia elementary school. Schools can now provide an additional 320 mgs more sodium in school lunches, on average, and the government can now...

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture is preparing to ease school lunch regulations created under former President Barack Obama. On Friday, the department announced its secretary, former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, will introduce an interim rule to provide "regulatory flexibility" for the National School Lunch Program at a Virginia elementary school on Monday, alongside Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. It's unclear how the regulations will be changed, or what effect it could have on school lunchrooms. The National School Lunch Program provides nutritionally balanced reduced-cost or free lunches to children. Former First Lady...

    WILMINGTON, Ohio -- For 14 years, Debbie Solsman worked as a beloved lunch lady at Denver Place Elementary School in Wilmington, Ohio. She was fired by the district in February, and her supporters raised an angry social media storm. When a child doesn't have money for lunch, Solsman said they're given a cheese sandwich. She said she would upgrade the lunch for those without money, or give them extra food if they were still hungry. "If they didn't have enough money in their account, they would get a cheese sandwich instead ... The other kids knew when they walked out...
  • President Trump Has Lunch With The Pope

    President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht, the Pope accepted and during lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's hat off, right into the water. It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place. The crew and the secret service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying "Never mind, boys, I'll get it." The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed...

    A Pennsylvania high school is no longer bound by federal food regulations after the district decided to do away with the National School Lunch Program. Penn-Trafford High School had been struggling to comply with federal regulations as cafeteria revenues and student lunch participation took a dive, the Tribune-Review reported. The school’s lunch program is now free from restrictions on calories, fat, sugar, salt, and other elements, but lost federal funding to help cover free and reduced-priced lunches for some students. However, district business manager Brett Lago said the district has still been able to provide free and reduced-price lunches to...

    Today, Trump accused Bill Clinton and the Attorney General Loretta Lynch of ‘showing bad judgment’ because of a meeting they had together. Trump questions this meeting because Hillary Clinton is under federal investigation — and Loretta Lynch decides her fate. The stealthy meeting took occured on Loretta’s jet after landing in Arizona Monday night. It worked out great for them, since Bill was leaving the airport from Hillary’s rally that day. During the town hall meeting by Mr. Donald Trump today in Manchester, he told Mike Gallagher (a talk show host) that the meeting was proof that the United States...

    It was a messy morning on Interstate 287 Friday as two accidents, including one involving a truck carrying deli meat and another truck carrying bread, snarled traffic on both the northbound and southbound sides in Central Jersey. At 3:46 a.m., State Police received a report of an accident on southbound Interstate 287 involving two tractor-trailers in South Plainfield at mile post five, said Capt. Stephen Jones, a State Police spokesman. One was carrying bread while the other was hauling deli meat.

    Chick-fil-A is rolling out a new app that will let customers avoid waiting in line at the register. The app, called Chick-fil-A One, will allow customers to order and pay for their food in advance, then pick it up at a counter designated for online orders. That's big news for fans of Chick-fil-A, which is typically slammed with customers during regular meal times, making long lines inevitable. The app will also allow users to customize and save their favorite orders. Michael Lage, a veteran of Facebook and Google who helped develop the app, says it will change how customers, particularly...

    Free Beacon ^ | 4/25/16 | Elizabeth Harrington
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a final rule Monday that will affect more than 3 million kids in daycare centers across the country. The regulation will only allow daycare centers to serve juice once a day, will ban fried foods, and encourages centers to not add honey to a child’s yogurt. The regulation is a result of the 2010 law aimed at school lunches, a top priority of Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move anti-obesity initiative. The government hopes the new rule will “help children build healthy habits.” “This final rule updates the meal pattern requirements for...

    The federal government is taking steps to fine schools that do not comply with first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule Monday to codify parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama. The regulation would punish schools and state departments with fines for “egregious or persistent disregard” for the lunch rules that imposed sodium and calorie limits and banned white grains. A West Virginia preschool teacher was threatened with fines for violating the rules by rewarding her students with candy for good

    When a middle school student came to Dalene Bowden and said she was hungry but didn't have the $1.70 to pay for her meal, the food service worker didn't think twice. She gave her the meal for free. Bowden's supervisor at Irving Middle School saw the cafeteria worker's deed and reported her. Last week Bowden received a certified letter from the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District in Pocatello, Idaho, that informed her of she was terminated from her job due to theft and "inaccurate transactions when ordering, receiving and servicing food."

    The request for halal food is perfectly reasonable: if Hollande is going to invite Rouhani to lunch, he shouldn’t serve him food that his guest cannot eat for religious reasons. But the request that there be no wine on the table is inherently supremacist and absolutely unjustifiable. Rouhani would not be forced to drink wine, but that’s not enough: if he is not going to drink wine, then no one else can drink it either, including the non-Muslims present. This demand is in line with the old axiom: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities. And...

    LONDONDERRY — The school board on Tuesday night unanimously voted to send a letter to elected officials asking for help with solving a dispute between the school district and the U.S. Department of Agriculture regarding school lunches. The letter signals that Londonderry is gearing up for a fight with federal regulators over the government’s intention to classify Londonderry High School’s kitchen areas as a “processing facility” — akin, the school district says, to Tyson Foods, and subject to the same regulations. “To some degree, it feels to us like it’s vindictive, because we made a move to do something that...

Business has been booming in Bozeman High School's cafeteria since its board members voted to drop the National School Lunch Program in a bid to keep students from leaving campus to eat.
