Lunch on a Student Budget

By Molly Rossmann

The lunch bell at Berkeley High School may as well be the shot from the starting pistol at a marathon, or maybe the 100-meter dash. Actually, the 800-meter might make for a better analogy.

So, to narrow it down, where can you get the best bang for your buck? If we’re talking under $5, Berkeley has some solid options when it comes to a filling, delicious lunch.
