During lunch time most everyone is ready to eat, but not many students are fond of the school food. As an alternative, the student council has decided to open up the Bronx River Snack Store for the students who are not into the school lunch.

“The snack store started in 2021 because students were complaining about the school lunch,’’ said Lavern Coleman, a Student Council advisor. “Student council wanted an alternative so they can ensure students aren’t running on an empty stomach.’’

Jannat Chowdhury, a  sophomore, appreciates the snack options.  “Because I typically don’t have time to eat or shop for anything beforehand, I like that I can get food while I’m at school,” she said.  “I like that it offers a choice of drinks and snacks with my preferred sweet treat, ice creams. Additionally the costs aren’t too bad.”

The snack store is open Monday through Thursday, during lunch period from 10:40 a.m. to 11 a.m. According to Ms. Coleman,  students aren’t allowed to go to the Snack Store during passing periods and are expected to purchase during lunch. Concepcion Pena, another Student Council advisor, said that the earnings from the snack store are used to restock the store, buy gift cards for town hall awards and help pay for senior dues. The funds also support community service projects, teacher appreciation gifts and candy for events, such as Halloween.

In the snack store, there is frequently a high demand for a variety of goods, with honey buns and Gatorade being among the fastest sellers. The main reason why this occurs is because these items are popular choices among the students. To keep up with the popular demand, the store management makes sure they are restocked every two weeks.
