Food Fight: Screening of Lunch Line

March 20, 2011 @ 2:30 pm

Sunday, March 20th
2:30 PM

Museum of Science, Cahners Theater

1 Science Park, Boston

Last December, we applauded when the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act was signed into law, which should improve the school lunches served to 31 million children. But there is still much to be done, which is the reason for our next film, Lunch Line on Sunday March 20th at 2:30pm.

This documentary takes a look at the current debates over school lunch reform and frames them with a bit of a history lesson, looking at how the lunch program came to be and how that information can help us in moving forward. It’s received rave reviews from school lunch advocates as well as The Atlantic.

Afterwards, we’ll hear from three speakers with different perspectives on the issue: Kim Szeto, from Boston’s Farm to School program; the City of Cambridge’s school nutritionist, Dawn Olcott and Katie Millet who runs the Massachusetts’ Department of Education nutrition program.

Reserve a spot for the afternoon through SFB with a $5 donation. Alternatively, you can attend free of charge by just showing up at the Museum on the day of the screening. We’d appreciate your donation, but feel free to take your chances as well!

This screening is generously co-sponsored by the Museum of Science’s ‘Let’s Talk About Food’ program, as well as the Boston Collaborative for Food & Fitness.
