Free Screening of Lunch Line Presented by ASU & Slow Food Phoenix
Catch a free screening of the documentary Lunch Line at the downtown ASU campus February 28.
It's a regular smorgasbord. Seems like everyone is trying to improve school lunches these days. Of course there's Michelle Obama. And our Michele Laudig blogged about a recent event in Scottsdale that brought chefs, and students together to experience the pleasures of cooking and eating fresh local food.
And now there's a new documentary called Lunch Line that started as an examination of the Organic School Project, a school garden project in Chicago, and ended up with what Phoenicians can see on Monday, February 28th at 5:30 pm at the ASU Downtown Civic Space.
Lunch Line chronicles the history of the National School Lunch Program that started in 1946 and examines the realities of feeding more than 31 million children a day. Filmmakers Ernie Park and Michael Grazian feature agricultural lobbyists, educators, farmers, and child nutrition advocates including the Renegade Lunch Lady Chef Ann Cooper, among others.
Following the screening there will be a local panel discussion on learning how to support your school and the history of the school lunch program.
Here's the trailer:
