Hector Munoz is running for student council president. His opponent is Christopher Milmoe, the school bully. Milmoe prints large banners and T-shirts to promote his campaign, while Hector struggles to find a campaign platform. As he watches Milmoe belittle others, he realizes he should run as "Hector the Protector." He promises to help make the school safe for all.
Hector's principal is concerned when he receives word that the new superintendent, Dr. Eliza Van Grindheimer, is paying a visit. He urges the Lunch Lady and her assistant Betty to get everything in tip-top shape. Lunch Lady notices all of the staff and students are losing their electronic devices. She investigates and discovers the school's head of technology has stolen them.
In the middle of the election debates, Hector's friend calls him away. The technology director, who only wants to create video games and is tired of fixing everyone's tech devices, has trapped Lunch Lady inside a video game. Fortunately, it is a game at which Hector is particularly skilled. He and the tech director have a video game battle. Hector saves the Lunch Lady and extracts her from the game.
Milmoe wins the election, and Dr. Van Grindheimer vows to shut down the school lunch program in favor of vending machines, leaving readers to wonder what's next for the Lunch Lady.
