8. A large part of the problem is that many schools no longer HAVE true kitchens

They no longer have "lunch ladies" who show up at 6 AM to prepare food from scratch.. The "food" arrives on a truck in prep trays..ready-cooked and available to be microwaved just before serving.
Food is usually prepared/portioned out at a central "kitchen", and trucked to schools..

For many schools, the cost of full time lunch ladies went away a long time ago, and now they just have tray-pushers, who just work a few hours a day..
