Green Dot’s takeover of Locke High School means there have been big changes in how the school looks, how students learn and how they’re allowed to dress and act.
But let’s talk about what really matters to teenagers. Lunch period.
The new Locke has hired a private caterer for its food service. That’s right. People in chef’s hats actually cook from scratch. No fake food in microwaves.
The students have obviously noticed. The owner of the catering company - Greg Dulan - says only about 300 meals were served at lunchtime last year. Now, he’s serving five times as many - 1,500 meals a day. Kids even try to sneak back into the line to get seconds.
Mr. Dulan wasn’t around the day we shot at Locke, so we talked to his chef.
