    They sell hummus trays with pretzels and stuff of that sort at Publix, Wal-Mart, etc. You could cook a veggie burger and put spinach, mushrooms, and any of vegetables of your choice on it. They sell frozen patties in common grocery stores like the ones mentioned above. Fresh fruit maybe? You could pack almonds or trail mix. Naked brand fruit smoothies are yummy, and they're sold pretty much at every convenient or grocery store. You could also just pack a water to drink. Izze sodas are pretty satisfying and they're just 100% fruit juice with a splash of sparkling water. They're a bit expensive though. Maybe Wheat Thins?

    That's all I can think of right now. I hope I helped!

    I'm also in 8th grade and I'm a vegetarian so I think I can help. Do you not eat bread? If you do sandwiches and wraps with pbj, cream cheese, hummus, veggies, honey and basically what you want are good. I always pack an apple, sandwich and yogurt. You could pack vegan yogurt, Oreos, crackers, bars, veggies or vegan cheese sticks. Make quesidialls with vegan cheese and pack those. Bring fruit too. Apples, pears, plums, peaches, grapes, raisins, apricots, bananas and kiwi are yummy.

    If you can prepare something the night before, fried tofu is my personal favorite. Just cut up extra firm tofu into decent sized squares (not too small), dab the excess water off with a paper towel, fill a pan with any kind of cooking oil (I prefer grape seed oil because it remains non-toxic under high temperatures) and set the cubes in the pan. Let each side tan up (avoid burning them, they're good when crisp) and when done put them in foil and leave out or put in the fridge (if refrigerated they may become soft) and take with you to school along with some soy sauce for dipping. Deeeelic!

    I'm in 8th grade, too.

    I used to make pastas, or bring the microwaveable pasta cups. I'd make fruit salads and salads now a days. An old teacher there used to have oat meal for us, is eat that, too.

    you can't find bread that has not dairy? OK, so make everything in a flour or whole wheat tortilla. tortilla w/ peanut butter and bananas in side. or make vegan wraps with the tortillas, like with salad stuff inside. or what about bagels? bagels are vegan. you can make sandwiches out of bagels. plain potato chips/tortilla chips. and apple, orange banana, cliff granola bars are vegan. good luck!

    I love dried fruit! Like banana and apricot and pineapple and apple slices. I find fresh fruit ends up kind of soggy and yuck after sitting all day until lunch but dried fruit doesn't go off or funny...

    I also love wholegrain rye biscuits with either hummus, yummy tahini or vegemite! Heaps of people hate it but I love it, it's really tangy and tasty.

    whatever you do do not eat jello for it has gelatin in it. gelatin is nasty. look it up.

    tofu nuggets with your favorite seasonings and dairy free sauce is awesome.

    i havn't made any quite as good as the ones i got at Earth Fare though. SOOO GOOD!!!!! :D
