Yuck: A Fourth Grader's Documentary About School Lunch

Trailer: Yuck - A 4th Grader's Short Documentary About School Lunch from Maxwell Project on Vimeo.

I heard this story on NPR on the way to work earlier in the week and I was laughing out loud! Wow! His school has a fab menu online, but offers up your typical school lunch fair. Who doesn't cringe when they think of grade school cafeteria food anyway? My school didn't bother to hide behind a fancy menu - it was what it was. I still make jokes about the porcupine meatballs. eeeewwwww....

It does, however, bring up the important issue of the school lunch program. With budgets stretched so thinly, cafeteria staff are strapped to produce nutritional meals with little to work with.
