It might be worse than you thought.
Lunch Line, documentary screening and reception with the filmmaker
Where: Pugh Auditorium; Shorty’s Restaurant
“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.” according to the Lunch Line web site.
A Q&A with filmmaker, Michael Graziano, and a reception will follow in Shorty’s Restaurant.
