Slow Food on Film: "Lunch Line" and Dinner after Screening
Thursday, September 22, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Join Slow Food San Francisco and Applegate Farms for a screening of "LUNCH LINE".
If you did not get your tickets yet - please feel free to bring cash and pay at the door. We do have seats left.
In 2009, thirty-one million American children ate lunch provided by the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The program, established in 1946 under President Harry Truman, has not updated its dietary guidelines in fifteen years, fueling debates and calls-to-action around school lunch reform. One such call-to-action is LUNCH LINE, the upcoming documentary that examines the history, present realities, and potential solutions surrounding hunger and school lunch reform. Thought-provoking, meaningful, and timely, here’s a sneak peek at LUNCH LINE.
Reception hosted by Applegate Farms, followed by the Film Screening.
"Lunch Line" , by Ernie Park and Michael Graziano
"An excellent primer on how our school lunch came to be what it is - and thus should be required viewing for anyone seeking to change it.
One of the most engaging on-screen history lessons I've ever seen. And, luckily, the lesson is a substantive one." – The Atlantic
Dinner at Rulli Restobar after screening.
After the screening have dinner with the filmmakers and Slow Food leaders at Rulli Restobar (2300 Chestnut St), a few doors down from the theater. Price is all inclusive, except for wine/beer.
