Pace’s Lunch and Cafeteria

Over the summer, Pace’s cafeteria and lunch improved drastically.

Pace now has improved foods for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast includes new Chobani yogurt and fresh fruits. Lunch includes hot served meals such as baked chicken, pizza and other items.

The workers who are in charge of providing these lunches made it known that their job is much harder when restocking certain items. “I like it, but it makes my job harder trying to find these foods,” Delores, the lunch lady said.

Last year’s in-school lunches were not great according to many sophomores.

Freshmen this year still complain because their lunch takes place during third period and they aren’t able to go out for lunch, so they are stuck with school food. “I wish it was later so we can go out for lunch,” said freshmen Kristen Harley.

According to staff, the cafeteria seating was not great in the past because the students could not sit comfortably. Before it was easier for the upperclassmen because they had access to both the cafeterias but freshmen didn’t. It was very crowded and uncomfortable. There were long tables with benches attached. But, now there are restaurant-like booths and stools that are not only elevated but are also ranged where everyone can sit with no complaints.
