Washington school students line up for salads

Kent-Meridian High School students can fill out forms and watch cafeteria staff create their lunches from scratch.

KENT, Wash.—In many ways, Kent-Meridian High School’s cafeteria is your typical American lunchroom — sound of teenage chatter, trays bumping against one another, and the smell of French fries wafting throughout the halls.

Except that lately fried foods have stopped flying onto students trays.

The longest lines are for ... salad.
