Doc Watchers and the Central Harlem CSA Present: Lunch Line
Ernie Park & Michael Graziano, 2010. 63 min.
The documentary Lunch Line takes a new look at the school lunch program. 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. Lunch Line follows six kids from one of the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago as they set out to fix school lunch  and end up at the White House. Their unlikely journey parallels the dramatic transformation of school lunch from a patchwork of local anti-hunger efforts to a robust national feeding program. The film tracks the behind-the-scenes details of school lunch and childhood hunger from key moments in the 1940s, 1960s, and 1980s to the present, revealing political twists, surprising alliances, and more common ground than people might realize.
