No. 3 - THE POLITICS OF SCHOOL LUNCHES
The history of the school lunch program and the USDA dietary guidelines with suggestions for parents responsible for their children s meals.
From its inception, the United States school lunch program has presented a clash between the ideal of providing nutritious food to hungry children and the reality of industrial food seeking lucrative government contracts. Unfortunately, the latter has won out, aided by the USDA dietary guidelines, now imposed on federally funded school lunch programs.
SPEAKER: Sally Fallon Morell is founding president of the Weston A Price Foundation, founder of A Campaign for Real Milk, and editor of Wise Traditions, the quarterly journal of the Weston A.
