"the most important film for an american to see if you have a child or know someone who has one." louis psihoyos, oscar winning director of 'the cove'
lunch hour is a feature documentary by actor/filmmaker/activist, and all-around foxy, great guy, james costa. the film examines america's school lunch programs. gasp! and how we, as a society, expose our children to some of the most unhealthy foods imaginable. does anyone remember corned beef hash with gravy and how it looked like barf? and bright yellow pieces of day-glo cake? jello that tasted like chemicals?
kids have no choice of what to eat in school, like in prison, and they're given foods that serve business interests and not health interests. it's about time someone took the veil off of these 'socially acceptable foods' that our schoolchildren eat, and filmmakers james costa and todd spradlin do just that!
it's not hard to feed a kid decent food. it might be hard to feed them great, healthy, organic foods, but why can't we feed our schoolchildren decent, healthy food? to find out, watch this doc! send this to your friends, and their friends, and their friend's friends.
