Lake County, Florida, has a problem. Kids aren’t eating their veggies. In fact, county officials say that kids threw out $75,000 worth of uneaten produce last year. To make sure this never happens again, the county is considering installing cameras in lunchroom trash cans!
To be fair, county officials don’t want to film students’ faces — just everything that goes in the trash. We’re not sure what they think they’re going to find or why they think this information will be useful.
Aside from the fact that this is a tremendous waste of money and reeks of Orwellianism, there’s one other problem with this idea. Some poor lunch lady is going to have to sit and watch all the footage!
