Stimulating Saturdays: Lobbying for a place on your lunch tray

The National School Lunch Program in the United States is a great idea. However, the implementation is worthy of a certain level of criticism, with its skewed balance of interests representing food producers, educators, school boards, the government, and many more. Oh yes. Let’s not forget the students who consume the school lunches. I wrote a bit about my experience with school lunches here and think that a lot could be done to improve the food that a good portion of students in North America consume within the school context. But there are a lot of movers and shakers behind the doors, controlling what foods are available at schools.
