Two of the mothers of kids who went to the same Catholic School that I was in, were the cooks. And they made food as good as any I've ever had. For scholl lunches, we had the best ever. Everthing, including the bread, was made at the school. How I remained rediculously skinny and small during those years is a mystery to me. I ate two of everything, at least, coupled with two eight ounce glases of milk. Even our high school lunches were just a notch below what I ate in grade school.
By the time I had children, the lunches were all made at a central location, and trucked to the schools. It wasn'[t even close to the quality of the meals I had. I felt sorry for them.
