It's now common for diners to pull out cellphones and snap photos of their meals.

The advocacy website is trying bring that trend to school cafeterias, encouraging students to submit photos of their lunches to the site's Fed Up school lunch campaign. Users can than view photos and rate the meals as "eat it" or "toss it."

DoSomething says it's gathering the photos to create a report showing "the real state of school lunch across the nation" and use it to advocate for better meals in schools.

And other organizations, such as the School Nutrition Association, are encouraging people to use the site to show off healthy meals being served in their schools.

Here's a sampling of photos of lunches from Philadelphia-area schools:
