Bye Bye Lunch Lady Hello Vending Machines

August 16, 2011

Who would have ever imagined that the school cafeteria lunch lady could be replaced by a machine? Well, in Miami that is exactly what's happening, in 55 middle  and high schools. 

The good news is that these vending machines won't be filled with candy and soda, instead they will be stocked with locally prepared meals made with seasonal ingredients. Local celebrity chef, Michelle Bernstein, along with a few of her colleagues are helping to design the meals.

Could this be the a of the future?? No more mystery meat and cardboard pizza? Except for the beloved lunch lady's job, this sounds like a step in the right direction.

If this is the actual food it does NOT look fresh or seasonal. YUCK!
