School lunch in America is very different from Japan.
Students in elementary, junior high, and high schools in America don't eat lunch in their classrooms.
They eat lunch in the school cafeteria.
American students can choose to bring a bag lunch from home or buy a school lunch.
Bag lunches from home usually are a sandwich, potato chips, a small salad or fruit.
When I was a student, all bag lunches were in brown paper bags but now they are many types.
School lunches are sold in the cafeteria.
Students line up, choose between 2 or 3 menu types and pay about 2 dollars.
The school lunch choices change every day.
But they are usually: hamburger, chicken, pizza, meat pie, or tacos for the main dish.
There are 2 side dishes of potaｔoes and vegetables and also a desert.
When I was a student , about 60 percent of students bought school lunches and 40 percent brought bag lunches.
