Lunch lady is an American slang term for a woman who cooks and serves food in a school cafeteria; the equivalent British English term is "dinner lady". In Britain, a dinner lady also patrols the school playgrounds during the lunch breaks to maintain order amongst the children. Since the 1960s, lunch ladies have sometimes been caricatured as overweight, uncaring women with hairnets, rubber gloves, glasses and moles.
