A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Plates


This week is National School Lunch Week, which should be a community call to action for more sustainable, healthy food choices served to our next generation everyday

Factors such as rising childhood obesity, and the overuse of processed foods calls for a closer look at what goes on those trays. “Mystery meat” and chocolate milk just don’t cut it.

That’s why this week is a great opportunity to browse through food activist Jamie Oliver’s photo gallery—The Best and Worst School Lunch Photo Wall.

Like a lineup of “the usual suspects,” the spotlight is cast on the worst of school meals and the best of school meals sent in by those concerned about this matter nationwide. Anyone can get involved by either uploading your own photos to be rated, or view and rate those already posted. The wall launched on September 26, and will run through November 26. After that, there will be a judging for the Top 10 in the Best and Worst Categories

Looking at some of the entries, would YOU want to eat like this, or would you demand a change?
