What does it take to reform school food programs, and provide more fresh, healthful and tasty meals to our nation's kids?
Cafeteria Man takes a candid look at Tony Geraci's sweeping, tenacious efforts to kick start school food reform in Baltimore's schools, a large urban district that serves 83,000 students, and later Memphis, with 200,000 students.
As the newly hired Food and Nutrition Director of the city's public school district, Geraci hatches an ambitious, multi-faceted plan to feed students healthy, locally-sourced meals, teach them nutritional awareness, and offer them training and vocational opportunities in the world of food. His bold vision includes a 33-acre teaching farm, school vegetable gardens, student-designed meals, and meatless Monday's.
