The ideas for the Tilden students' menu arose from a discussion at school. "One day we were talking about how we can change our school lunch, and how we want a better selection," says Franklin, a junior. "My chef just brought it out: 'There's a competition for that, to improve your lunch.' And we were like, 'We want to enter.'"
