Michelle Obama has spent much of her time the last few years attempting to fight hunger by reducing the variety of foods in school lunches.
Students are now organizing against the new food portions inspired by the First Lady. Many have taken to Twitter, Facebook and other social media to share pictures of poor-looking lunches served to them under the directive.
Since the First Lady's leadership on school lunches have taken effect, the program has seen its largest drop in participation in history. A total of 33 states have so far have issued statements saying many students will not eat the new lunches.
Opposition is strongest from athletes, who say the meals do not provide nearly enough nutrition for physical activities.
One hungry student took a picture of the food they had been served, and tweeted "I'll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch."
