Although kids may not want to admit it, but lunches are a part of elementary school.I would say that school lunches have come a long way from the school lunches of the 60’s, 70’s and even in the 80’s. Today, on the Top 5 at 7:45,  I’ll highlight what some of the worst school lunches were…..ever.

What were some of the worst “mystery foods” they called lunch, to ever hit your cafeteria tray? Tell us about it.

  1. Canned Peas: These were absolutely the worst little mushy green things to my palate. Even with honey. Gross!
  2. Liverwurst Sandwiches: I’m sure we’re going back quite a few decades with this one. Now days, serving this in school would probably be considered child abuse. A very poor excuse for potted meat.
  3. Meatloaf: We dare call it “street loaf.” Meat, munched together with big hunks of uncooked onions with some catsup drizzled on top. No thanks!!!!
  4. Tuna “Sloppy” Caserole: Noodles, onions and tuna. Yuck!!!! They could make this in bulk to feed the masses, but it was nasty with a capital N.
  5. Refried Beans: For the most part, they tasted and smelled like cat or dog food. I can’t even describe the taste, but the texture was crunchy on the outside and limp on the inside.

The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays with me, Gary Freeman, and sponsored by First Education Federal Credit Union.
