Description
Excerpt: The food environment at Gratts Elementary school in the Pico Union neighborhood of Los Angeles, as with many other low-income schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, leaves much to be desired. At Gratts, 97% of the students are Latino and 90% qualify for a free or reduced lunch. On any given day, the lunch menu at the school might consist of pizza, or a cheeseburger on a bun with French fries, and a fruit cup in heavy syrup. And while elementary school students are not allowed to have vending machines on the school grounds, just a few blocks away, at Belmont High School, you could, until recently, buy items like chips, a 20 ounce coke, or a candy bar.
