Lunch at St. Ray's
Lunch at our school is broken into 4 groups: grades PreK-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6-8. The students in 2nd grade are participating in this project and I took pictures of their lunchboxes and what they had for lunch on a typical day.

Almost every day, students bring their lunches.

Although there's a lunchroom, there isn't daily hot lunch.

Once a month, our school has "hot lunch day" where the Home and School Association orders hot meals from local restaurants/fast food places like McDonalds, Burger King, and Hey Hot Dog!

A student's lunch typically has fruits, sandwiches, yogurt, chips, and snacks.
