Student Starts Instagram Account To Out School's Consistently Rotten Cafeteria Food

Everyone knows the school cafeteria does not provide an elevated dining experience — the name “cafeteria” alone conjures up images of gruel and colorless, questionable food. But parents should still be able to expect their children to be fed healthy and nutritious meals while at school.

Sadly, one teenager from Blue Island, Illinois, has shown that the lunches served at Dwight D. Eisenhower High School are anything but edible.

In fact, junior Amber Christensen was so disgusted by the meals being served every day that she decided to speak up and ask for change.

A photo is worth a thousand words, which is probably why she started an Instagram page to document the raw, rotting and sometimes bug-infested foods placed on her tray.

@ikeprisonfood features over a hundred photos of different meal items — all of them almost too sickening to look at.

Have you ever seen food as bad as this?

“The hamburgers just looked like straight up raw meat,” Christensen told WBBM-TV. “You just kept seeing rotten apples and oranges.”

If those sentences aren’t disturbing enough, she has the photos to prove that these meals are inedible. Some shots show hair in the food, while others show how difficult it is to determine exactly what the “food” is.

The problem had been going on for some time before the day Christensen became ill after eating what can only be termed “mystery meat.”

“We had some type of meat loaf, Salisbury steak, I don’t really know what it was,” she told WBBM-TV. “I got sick off of it and went to the school nurse. There were other kids in the nurse’s office that were sick from it too.”

She then started posting. Other students got in on the action too, sending in photos and videos of the food Christensen’s mom, Mandy Silva, dubbed “appalling.”

“Can someone tell me (what) they are serving our kids at lunch????” Silva wrote on Facebook in December 2018.

According to WBBM, Ty Harding, the district’s superintendent, said in a statement, “The cafeteria team and the school administration met with students and took action based on their feedback.”

While Christensen told WBBM “It’s edible now,” she wrote in an Instagram story that “if the food goes back to how it used to be,” she’ll resume posting photos.



It’s been a couple of weeks since the last photo was posted on April 3, 2019. We hope there will no longer be a need to post and pray the school heightens their standards for student meals.

Liftable, a section of The Western Journal, reached out to district contact John Hallberg but has not received yet received a response. We will update this article if and when we do.
