School Food Forum Now on YouTube

If you missed the School Food Forum: Creating a Vision of Fresh, Real Food in Montgomery County Public Schools, then you’re in luck – it’s now up on YouTube. If you can only devote an hour to reviewing it, I’d recommend part 3, which includes the inspiring talk by Tony Geraci, the subject of the documentary “Cafeteria Man” (his speech begins at 14:45). 

Part 1   -   Part 2   -   Part 3

For more information on the speakers and to download the Power Point presentations from the Forum, see:

"My child told me today that the bananas at school tasted fake. I was actually surprised, how much of a difference can there be when it comes to bananas? He said all the 4th graders know not to choose the fruit because it just doesn't taste good like it does at home."
