The nation celebrates National School Lunch Week October 15-19. The site is worth a click perhaps for the terrifying characters alone. Yumi Rice Bowl is gonna appear in my nightmares, that’s for sure.

School lunch has been getting a lot of attention in recent years, due to bad news about childhood obesity and worse news about school budgets.
