In so many communities our school lunch programs are failing our kids. What happens when a community recognizes this and demands change? In the 1990s a diverse group of Berkeley parents decided to challenge the Berkeley Unified School District lunch program and change the system. Their efforts led to the 1999 âBerkeley Food Policyâ and, in 2004, to the Berkeley School Lunch Initiative, one of the first programs of its kind in the world.
How did they do it? How can we reform food policies in other communities? The Lunch Love Community Documentary Project explores this community-based school lunch reform movement, and how passionate and dedicated people coming together can change the way their children eat, how they think, and how they learn in school.
