Hi! We are 27 6th-graders and one teacher at The Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria in Queens, NY. A few months ago, an assignment for our “Play With Your Food” elective class was to write a review of the school lunch. We discovered that most of us were grossed out by what we got not only that day but every day. We had all kinds of ideas about what to do about it: write a business letter to the Department of Education, tell the newspaper, hire a celebrity chef, bring a lunch to Mayor Bloomberg at his office, and on and on and on. This website is our way of putting all our ideas and energy into one place that everyone can visit. We want to show people exactly what is being served to New York City Public School kids every day. Yuck!
The Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria is a public single-gender school in Queens, NY, currently serving girls in grades 6-9. More than 25 countries are represented by the students in our 6th grade alone.
