Hi, all -

I wanted to pass along information about an upcoming free community screening at the Hill Center (Eastern Market metro) of an award-winning school food documentary about Chef Tony Geraci's work in Baltimore Public Schools. After the film, stay for a brief panel discussion with some of our area's leading school food experts to hear what's going on in DCPS next year.  The screening is sponsored by the Capitol Hill Public School Parent Organization

Feel free to share with anyone who would be interested and contact me with any questions - (lauramarks at gmail dot com).

Do you care what our kids are eating at school?

Wednesday, May 30 - 7:00 pm
The Hill Center – 921 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE

Find out what other schools are doing to make the change to locally-grown, freshly-prepared meals. 

Stay for a discussion after the film with filmmaker Richard Chisolm and some of DC’s leading school food experts.

Tony Geraci, as food-service director for Baltimore’s public schools, embarked on an ambitious project: to “green” the lunches of the city’s 83,000 students by replacing pre-plated, processed foods with locally-grown, freshly prepared meals. A charismatic chef from New Orleans, Geraci describes himself as a “little bit lunch lady, a lot P.T. Barnum.” His bold vision includes school vegetable gardens, student-designed meals, meatless Mondays and nutrition education in the classroom. Over the course of two years, the film documents the efforts of parents, teachers, administrators, farmers, chefs and dozens of creative and motivated students to overhaul a dysfunctional nutritional system. Healthy food advocates Michael Pollan and Will Allen and First Lady Michelle Obama also make appearances.  Directed and produced by Richard Chisolm and Sheila Kinkade.

This is a FREE event but please reserve your seat as space is limited:  

Sponsored by Capitol Hill Public School Parent Organization.
