Lunch Lady Told To Stop Serving Fresh Bread and Vegetables To Lower Quality To Other Schools

Annika Eriksson is not your usual lunch lady. The Swedish lunch lady often served fresh bread and vegetables to the children at her school in Falun, Sweden.

It moved quickly to stop Eriksson — telling her to serve the same fare as other schools so not to give her students a better meal than other students. It is managing a school to the lowest common denominator. Rather than striving for all schools to serve better food, it was easier to reduce the quality at the leading school.

Katarina Lindberg, head of the body responsible for the school diet plan, defended the action “to try and ensure everyone does the same.” All students will now eat non-fresh food in a triumph of egalitarian society. Erikkson was last seen in the school kitchen responding to the directives of the school administration:

    What about that nuclear mishap in China? Perhaps it’s off the coast. Oh wait, perhaps it was Japan.

    Well, we got our vegetables and fresh bread back and we’re really happy!
