Lunch Line

(dir. Ernie Park and Michael Graziano, 2009, 63 min). This documentary takes
a new look at the school lunch program by exploring its past, its current
challenges, and its opportunities for the future. The National School Lunch Program began in 1946, and now, more than 60 years later, the program feeds more than 31 million children every day. In the film, leaders from all sides of the school food debate, including government officials, school foodservice experts, activists, and students, weigh in on the program and discuss ways to continue nourishing America’s children for another 60 years.
