RAYMOND, N.H. — They could have had a food fight. But a group of New Hampshire middle school students unhappy with their lunch options staged a silent protest in the cafeteria, instead.

About 100 students at Iber Holmes Gove Middle School in Raymond brought their bagged lunch one day last week instead of buying their food at school.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/JiIS03) among the students’ complaints were that they had to buy two meals instead of just one to get full. They also said they wanted to see less cheese and more vegetables on the menu.

School officials said they were happy to listen— especially because the students took a mature approach.

Superintendent Jeannie Richards said the school took a survey of students’ concerns will soon start to make changes
