Remove the policy where a student is required to take a fruit or vegetable

Hello we are Brandan Conklin, Jason Harty, and Hugo Ruiz. During the course of our time being in Seward we've noticed a problem in this school. This problem arose because of a policy. This policy requires students to take either a fruit or vegetable in order to buy a school lunch. However, this policy has proven not to be very helpful. This policy has created a lot more garbage in the school and has wasted a lot more food. According to an article by the San Diego Union Tribune a local school's garbage count increased the garbage count by 56 percent. On top of this fruit consumption lowered from 0.51 cups to 0.45 cups. We think that our school has this problem as we see students throw away food they didn't want to take all the time. This is not only an issue with the school but also with the state.


There are many ways in order to fix this problem in this school. One (obvious) way is to remove this policy. Since this is a policy focused on living healthier, we could have open gym during lunch or during a free period when it is not in use. People would love to be able to play in the gym whenever.

We hope you sign and support the petition!
