Brashier is fortunate enough to have amazing faculty that cares about students opinions and happiness. For example, Mrs. Schockling does a lot of behind the scenes work for student events such as Arts Intercession and finding food vendors for lunch.
“I enjoy the vendors for our school lunch a lot better than traditional school lunch,” says Junior Kimberly Fleming.
Brashier offers a varied selection of foods including Chick-Fil-A, Subway, Tropical Grill, P.F. Chang’s, and Hungry Howie’s Pizza.
“I think Brashier’s lunch runs very well. I think that all the different things we have offer [at lunch] all the kids enjoy and there is just a good variety [of food],” says lunch volunteer, Amy Buckmaster.
Pizza is an iconic American food, and serving pizza on Fridays is a common school lunch. Brashier students really enjoy Hungry Howie’s pizza, not only for the taste, but the students also think the price is really affordable compared to other vendors.
“Pizza [is my favorite vendor] because it only costs one dollar. It tastes good and the servings are [substantial],” says Junior Sabrina Martinez.
Even though Brashier’s lunch vendors are more popular and taste better than traditional high school lunches, they cost more. For example, Tropical Grill and Subway cost about 3-4 dollars. Many students say this is too expensive, and they would rather have cheaper options. If a student was to buy lunch every day it could wind up being very expensive, and students have other responsibilities to pay for like gas, graduation supplies, etc.
“Tropical Grill is my least favorite vendor. They aren’t as good as the other ones Brashier has,” says Junior Josiah Jennings.
Students have said they want to change a few of the vendors and try something new. These new food vendors would replace the less popular food choices like Tropical Grill and Subway. If the vendors change it might increase the amount of students who buy lunch.
“Even though Brashier’s lunch choices can get old I still appreciate it more than traditional style lunch like at Hillcrest,” says Junior Hannah Clark.
