Music Video Voices Students' Lunch Concerns

Posted: Updated:

It's a controversial topic spreading across the country. Students nationwide say they are frustrated with the new school lunch guidelines. And now some local teachers and officials say they are concerned some kids aren't getting enough food.

These three student athletes at Milnor school say another day through this lunch line, is another day their stomachs will growl. "People are just not getting enough food," says Colin Aglow, student at Milnor. They say since new USDA lunch guidelines went into effect, they continue to be hungry. "We need more food, we need more calories," says Andrew Martinson, student. These three guys finally decided enough was enough and decided to send a message through a music video. "We already have a couple thousand views now," says Wyatt Mund, student. And it's not just students who say there's not enough food on their plate, teachers believe some kids need more calories at lunch.

"It's just not enough. A lot of changes are good but there's not enough calories on their plate," says Ned Clooten, Principal at Milnor School. Clooten says he backs the video these guys put together and hopes this might bring a change. "With our high active kids this is not enough. Tweaks need to be made"

For Wyatt Mund, Andrew Martinson, and Colin Yagow, they hope their voices will be heard. "Maybe this will change the guidelines a little bit."
