I can't imagine the local produce or live stock being any better. Students should be taught where all that PCB, lead, mercury, and cadmium comes from?

Back in the day all school lunches were prepared using only local foods. Cars were not real popular until Henry Ford started mass production. Then came along busy family schedules and the rush of daily lives. Then came along budget cuts at the schools and already prepared foods for convenience. Maybe parents would like to volunteer to feed all the kids again - Any Volunteers?

No. Kids should have a positive impression of local food. It should be fresh and taste good. The school cafeterias would negate both of those qualities.

Depends. Shop for the best deals like anyone would. It is a free market, right?
