First Lady Michelle Obama is declaring war on your favorite chicken sandwich and waffle fries.
The White House has officially condemned Chik-fil-A, the controversial fast-food franchise known for its Christian values and “original chicken sandwich.”
Many public schools across the U.S., including one South Carolina district, sells Chik-fil-A at lunch. The sandwiches sell far better than the school-cooked lunch items and profits contribute to extra-curricular activities for underprivileged and special needs students.
But, under the First Lady’s new school lunch guidelines, these schools can no longer sell Chik-fil-A, as the typical sandwich is 90 calories over the maximum caloric intake for an “entree item.”
“They don’t meet the standards,” Socastee High School Principal Paul Browning told the local news. “We’re struggling with it.”
“The Chick-fil-A profits went directly to the field trips,” the principal lamented. “We’ve got to raise some money, but we will figure something out.”
