Lunch Line

A discerning documentary examines the difficulties with feeding over 31 million kids a day


Highlighted on Good, the new documentary “Lunch Line” takes a shrewd look at what’s served in school cafeterias from past to present. With a seemingly similar mission to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, “Lunch Line” examines the USDA’s relaxed nutritional guidelines while trumpeting the Chicago-based Organic School Project—an organization that teaches children the fundamentals of gardening and healthy living.

The thought-provoking trailer is packed with intriguing quotes from senators, lobbyists, and USDA directors alike, with one food and health official declaring school lunches as “some of the healthiest food we have.” Created by filmmakers Michael Graziano and Ernie Park and sponsored by Applegate Farms, “Lunch Line” will soon be available on DVD.
