Burrito Justice for High Schoolers

Johnny0 from Burrito Justice has the scoop on some injustice regarding taco trucks and Mission District high schools:

The drama increases — apparently the sups passed a law banning “mobile food establishments” to enforce a “wellness policy” to protect school lunch programs. Except that…

– only seniors can go off campus for lunch
– NO students were actually going to the truck
– the principal *did* go to the truck for lunch
– the SEIU is involved
– I somehow doubt school lunches have improved much from my memories of Reagan-era “ketchup is a vegetable”, mountains of gov’t cheese and “pizza day”…

Link. Oh snap! If the principal knows what’s up, then…

  1. Caroline Grannan is a very vocal public school advocate, who is very good at getting under people’s skin. I don’t agree with her on much of anything (including this), but for context she is a starting point to see how this came out of the SFUSD’s “Wellness” policy.

    Not too surprising to see the SEIU get involved, as I believe they are the bargaining unit for the SFUSD cafeteria workers. You know, “their” students are being stolen by “Big Taco.”
