Whether they have first, second, or third lunch, every student who eats their midday meal at Wade Hampton is as hungry as ever when they approach the cafeteria. Students only get hungrier as they wait in long lines. Most students want as much food that they can get on their plate after the wait. Many people have theories about what is affecting their meal size.

The discrepancies in the amount of food served in the cafeteria can be caused by many things, but it is not caused by favoritism by lunch ladies.
