Roughly 30 million kids in the U.S. eat school lunch every day, and "Big Food" companies have a pretty big stake in what makes it on kids' trays. It starts with federal money, but before USDA funding makes it to cafeterias, many school districts order from food giants like Tyson and PepsiCo who grab a big slice of the school lunch pie. We hear a lot about school lunches in America and the food itself doesn't always get the best reputation. From Hollywood depictions to real life memories, the school cafeteria is a quintessential part of American culture. Who decides what food gets put on the tray? And how come one school serves this on a $1.25 budget, while another serves this? Why are teachers working at McDonald's for a night? And how does a slice of Domino's pizza meet USDA guidelines? Those are all loaded questions with complicated answers, but if you really boil it down the answer is money. Lots and lots of money. The billion lunches that get doled out in school cafeterias every year make up a multibillion dollar industry that makes sure millions of kids are fed. It starts with federal money but on its way to cafeterias, school districts have to order the meals and food giants grab a big slice of the school lunch pie. » Subscribe to CNBC: About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Chakat Nightsparkle : When i was in high school, School Lunch was $5 if you bought it, If you applied for Discounted Lunch it was $4. then if you were approved for Free Lunch. it was Free but all you got was either 1 bread folded over with some peanut butter and jelly in it with small bottle or water. or a Apple with a small bottle of water that was it. But again, I usually didnt eat Lunch, being that I ate breakfast at home around 7am. go to school classes start at 7:40am. by 9:40 Lunch period. Most of the Kids didnt eat lunch or would not have breakfast. I never ate lunch at school. I waited until i got home at 2:10 when i ate Lunch. Was home everyday by 2:10pm .

Menntes : Make it so kids that can bring their own lunch do so kids less fortunate can get a nice lunch. Plus it saves money which could be used on other supplies for the school or something else.

Kamren Walker : I remember my senior year of high school we were given mini water bottles during lunch. Well within a few weeks we were no longer provided them because “it wasn’t a coke product” coke actually threaten to sue the district if those waters were givin out during lunch.

Raymond Walter : My school sells hot trash for $3 in the middle of the semester I stoped eating at school because I had to pay $3 for stuff I would just throw away.

BeachGnome : I grew up in Canada and never experienced a school lunch. We either brought our own from home or bought food from the cafeteria like a restaurant.

David Alexandrovitch : Now school lunches come from Sysco or US Foods overstock. It's about the same way prisons and jails recieve food.

Pki : Idk about y’all, but the pizza at my school is worse than little ceasers, so I guess my school doesn’t get pizza from dominos

wayfaring tiger : As a elementary custodian it breaks my heart to see the kids eat food I wouldn't eat. The fruits and vegetables break my back. The students are forced to take a fruit, and Its understandable they throw them away, most often due to them not being ripened. I wouldn't eat a green banana or a bitter orange.

guesswho kk : Need a radical revolution for school to change, another Jamie Food Revolution perhaps. Schools is a place of learning where it should be free from capitalism.

Magicpond : my school lunch is plastic wrapped rubber chicken

Mike 767 : I never ate at school it was like barf so I would always wait until I got home
