Good news! The USDA will allow more meats and grains in school lunches following criticisms of parents and lawmakers. To all supporters of our video, thank you for making your voices heard!

Our message needs clarification. We are excited about being offered more healthy fruits and vegetables. We feel the protein and carbohydrate limitations, 10-12 ounces a week, are not enough fuel for our average very active student. Almost all our students have a weights class and compete in sports. We see a problem with a one size fits all program that only is meant to target the overweight student, not the average student as deemed by local governing boards.

A parody on the national school lunch policy mandated by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 which humorously shows the results of the limitations in carbohydrates and proteins. To see media reaction to "We Are Hungry" and the Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, check our Facebook page "We Are Hungry" School Lunch Video!

Lyrics:
Give me some seconds
I, I need to get some food today
My friends are at the corner store
Getting junk so they don't waste away
My lover ate her 2 grams of meat
Just about to starve
My bread was taken by some school bully
Askin' bout s'more
And i know i gave up on food months ago
I know i'm trying to forget it
But between the milk and feta cheese
The pains in my tummy sing
You know I'm trying hard to find
nourishment

So by the time you go to practice
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home

Tonight
We are hungry.
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Now i know that this is not
All that you got.
I guess that I,
I just thought maybe we could find a
way not to starve today
But our friends are back
They are filled right up
Cause they found somewhere to find lots of food

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Crawling home tonight
Just crawling home tonight
Crawling home tonight
Just crawling home tonight;

The cooks are on my side
But I have no energy to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
No nourishment arrived
But i can taste mom's meal
So will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

So if by the time that it's all over
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home tonight
