No Lunch Ladies At Congressional Cafeteria

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It will be interesting to see which senator will be banished to the losers table tomorrow (Sept. 21) during the Capitol Hill school-lunch taste test.

During the event, Congress members will have a chance to test five different foods, which are being introduced as healthy school cafeteria alternatives.

The event is being hosted by the School Nutrition Association, which hopes to show members of Congress that foods like pizza can be healthy.

Congress members will test five different delicacies, including “Heddi Spaghetti,” “Sally Salad,” “Rocco Taco,” “Ricky Chicken” and, of course, “Pete Pizza.”

Then they’ll vote for their favorite.

Although milk and juice will be served, the cafeteria confections will not be dished out by hair-netted lunch ladies, because strict security rules in the House of Representatives allow only “special caterers” to prepare the food.

However, spokesman Erik Peterson promises that the recipes will “taste just like they do in a school cafeteria.”
