To start off the school year, the cafeteria began selling new food during break and lunch, which includes a variety of ice cream, chips, and drinks.
However, the higher quality of cafeteria food has also brought higher prices. The ice cream is a good example of this, as a soft serve cone now costs $1.50. Also, new and pricier types of ice cream, like Nestlé Drumsticks and Magnum bars, are available in the cafeteria.
The most noticeable rise in price is the pizza. This year, it is being made by the cafeteria staff instead of being purchased at Domino's. As a result, they have marked up the price from $2.00 to $2.50.
Despite the rise in prices, students are happy to see new foods being served in the cafeteria. Sophomore Cameron Mellilo said, “It’s healthier and they actually prepare good food.”
The new manager of the cafeteria is Monica Garcia, an accomplished chef with a lot of experience in the dining industry. She believes in using a higher quality of ingredients to make better meals for students.
“I think that going with fresher ingredients is better than getting something from the street,” Ms. Garcia said.
She has many ideas to bring to the table, but she would also like to know what the students think and what foods they might want the cafeteria to offer. This year, there will be a suggestion box in the cafeteria for students to leave any suggestions about foods they would like to see in the cafeteria.
Senior Madeline Bonner said, “I think there is a lot less variety, but it definitely doesn't taste worse than last year, and the price is the same for the same, if not slightly greater, amount of food. I don't really have complaints.”
