The school cafeteria is one of the most crowded areas in the school. Every lunch, there are four to five hundred students trying to get in line, grab a spoon or fork, or rush to get a table for their friends. Buying food in the lunch line can sometimes be a mess, so here are some tips on what to do and not to do to make everyone’s lunch experience better.


  • Try to get to lunch early, that way the line is shorter and you can get in and out faster.
  • Get your food and get out as fast as possible, without lingering to talk to your friends or standing in line forever deciding what you want
  • Be respectful to the lunch ladies; say please and thank you.
  • Always be conscious of others around you.



  • Cut in line to get your food faster.
  • Start a conversation in the middle of the serving area.
  • Be disrespectful towards the lunch ladies.
  • Push and shove people when the serving area is overcrowded.


It is always tempting to cut in line in order to get your food quicker, but cutting holds up the entire lunch process. These tips may seem simple, but if you follow them it will make lunch, especially the lines, more efficient and simple for everyone .
