Students in the Plum Borough School District in suburban Pittsburgh are #BrownBagginIt to call attention to pricey school lunches they don't like.
Instead of launching a cafeteria sit-in or school walkout over school lunches, students in the Plum Borough School District in suburban Pittsburgh are proving that all it takes to stage an effective protest is a smartphone and Twitter. The price of a lunch has risen to $2.50, and students say they're not going to pay more for lower quality food. The social media savvy high schoolers have pledged to boycott the cafeteria food and bring a sack lunch from home. They're using the hashtag #BrownBagginIt to let the world know why.
