Lunch Lady Bravely Defies Michelle Obama, But Is Punished With This


June 5, 2015 8:14am PST

Schools across the country are sick and tired of Michelle Obama’s infamous school lunch plans and are desperately looking for ways to get out of it. One school in Minnesota bravely took a stand and defied the First Lady, and now she’s coming after them in a major way.

Prior Lake High School abandoned Michelle’s program after students presented a petition in the fall outlining their issues with it. Now, the school is being penalized by losing out on $170,000 in federal funding.

Janeen Peterson, the district’s director of food services, said that opting out of the program has still presented benefits for the students, despite the punishment.

“Under the federal program, the serving sizes did not meet the needs of our students,” she said, adding that students can now take whatever portions they want.

“Hopefully it will reduce some waste,” she continued, according to The Washington Examiner. 

While opting out of the program will help the students, the school will suffer greatly financially. Peterson told the press that meal prices would increase from $2.45 to $2.95 “to cover the cost of going off the program.”

Prior Lake isn’t the only school to take a financial punishment from Michelle in order to help their students. Three other Minnesota schools have left the program, and many in other states have as well. In fact, 30 schools in Wisconsin have abandoned Michelle’s precious school lunch rules. In the last year, over 600 schools across the country have also defied the first lady by leaving the program.

This news comes just days after it was revealed that Americans have actually gotten fatter during Obama’s presidency. This happened despite the fact that Michelle Obama has devoted all of her time as first lady to trying to get Americans to lose weight.

It looks like nobody wants to follow your orders, Michelle, so why don’t you shut your mouth and give up on your “rules,” just like the rest of us have!
