"Healthy foods, drinks and snacks will improve student performance. Junk in, junk out. You are what you eat. My 4th grade science teacher told us that, and I've always believed it."
- an HSFM supporter

"Huge amounts of food from the school "cafeterias" are pitched every day by students. The food initially is appealing but after tasting it, few students eat much of it. From Kindergarten on I urged my three grandchildren (and their parents) to pack lunches. My grandkids agree - their packed lunch is better."
