Kids at Bear River are devouring the new and improved Snack Bar.

The Snack Bar, where most kids get their food for lunch, has been improved this year. They have a bunch of new items that they are selling, including both healthy and delicious choices to tempt student appetites.

“I like it alot, especially when they have the salad bar,”  said Marie-Claire Desplancke, a sophomore.

Snack Bar official not only have delicious stuff on their menu but also healthy things as well. Students also say the Snack Bar is also convenient.

“I feel like it saves me from getting up earlier and I can buy stuff here,” said Sean Cullers, a freshmen.

Dianna Siebecke, the longtime head of Food Service at the Snack Bar, discussed possible changes taking place at lunch.

“There aren’t really any changes, the only change would be the food count,” she said.

Though there aren’t many changes to the lunch break, there are some changes in the lunch.

“We offer slushies and lemonade now, and the implementing of drinks,” said Mrs. Siebecke. “My expectation is that food is served well, presented well, and not for it to go bad.”

Desplancke agrees with Mrs. Siebecke.

“If they have burritos, I get burritos because they make it fresh there except for the pizza.”

Cullers also likes the new addition.

“I get the slushies mostly because they’re good, and pretty self explanatory.”

Students say these changes are edible and pleasing to the taste buds, but are they the changes that are most important to what the students at Bear River want? One issue that is frequently cited is the fact than some kids, mostly the freshmen, cut in line at the snack bar and cause trouble for the students they cut.

“We’re trying real hard to catch it when we can,” said Mrs. Siebecke.

Although food service staff are working on the line-cutting problem, some students complain on how long it takes for them to get their food.

Mrs. Siebecke said that the Snack Bar’s limited crowdflow could hinder efforts to fix the problem.

“I don’t think so, (we are) serving as fast as we can with 3 windows,” she said.

Even though this problem may be not be fixed, others may be Mrs. Siebecke said.

“I love feedback,” said Mrs. Siebecke.

“I think it would be better if they had salad bar everyday,” Desplancke said.

Some students say they like the Snack Bar the way it is already.

“Honestly, I think it’s perfect the way it is,” Cullers said.
