This from Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/23/school-lunches-health-obesity-nutrition-act_n_812463.html):
On January 2010, Mrs. Q, began a daunting task. An elementary teacher using "Mrs. Q" as a pen name to preserve her anonymity, decided to eat school lunch every day for one year.

Mrs. Q's blog, "Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project (http://fedupwithschoollunch.blogspot.com/)," describes her daily adventure eating $3 lunches at her desk with pictures and commentary. Mrs. Q's first blog post details her mission:
I'm going to attempt to eat school lunch everyday in 2010. As a teacher it's available to me as well for a few dollars. Most of the students at my school get free lunch or reduced. I'm going to take pictures of the school lunch and post them.
With daily meal updates describing the chicken nuggets to the fruit cups, through the best and the worst of school lunches, Mrs. Q generated quite a following. Supporters include PTAs and nutritionists, critics include the School Nutrition Association.
