WOODBURY, N.Y. (AP) - Some 300 teenagers waged a food fight in their school cafeteria so fierce that educators had to call police to help them restore order.

The students at Monroe-Woodbury High School, about 65 kilometres north of New York City, had ignored school officials' attempts to end the disturbance.

With officers standing by, the teens were ushered out of the cafeteria and into the gymnasium, where school officials tried to determine who instigated the melee. A surveillance video was also being reviewed to determine those responsible.

Nine police cruisers from three agencies, including state police, responded to the call, the Times Herald Record of Middletown reported Friday.
No one was injured during the fight.

When asked by the newspaper what was on the menu, district Superintendent Terrence Olivo replied, "Whatever's on the floor."
