Just For Lunch

Children at school love to complain about the quality (or lack thereof) of their school lunches. The pizza is cold, the milk is warm, and the meat is mysterious. In short, the food served on those Styrofoam trays is nothing like what your mother used to make, and when your mother is more likely to make stir fry than fried chicken, the differences are even more shocking! Inspired by New York City Council Member Margaret Chin's crusade to improve the quality of school lunches, as part of Tribeca Teaches, the 8th grade students of MS 131 in Chinatown created JUST FOR LUNCH, a documentary short that takes a look at the food served in their own cafeteria.
