Lunch ladies are very often underappreciated by students.  There are about 700 hundred students at Sloan-Hendrix.  Each day these ladies will prepare breakfast for 700 students, will clean up after those 700 hundred students, take a 15 minute break and start all over again for lunch.  But that’s not all; these devoted ladies arrive at school at 6:15 which means they are up around 5:30.  The lunch ladies also have to take at least 10 hours of CNA (Certified Nutrition Assistant)  training each year to learn about the right foods to serve that give you the most nutrition.

 Why am I telling you this you ask; it’s because some people think that cooking food is easy and that may be, but have you ever cooked for 700 endless hungry kids?  It’s not all bad though they have some favorites, and here are their interviews.
