Summary

Lunch Hour examines America's National School Lunch program, which exposes children to unhealthy, but culturally accepted foods at a young age. Is this the root of the childhood obesity crisis? What is causing us to lust for these unhealthy foods? Have we unconsciously decided to ignore this situation and accept an unhealthy diet as the social norm? School officials, politicians, doctors, celebrity chefs, authors and others share what they're doing to problem solve this predicament and help save the children of America. Additionally, a USA Today investigative journalist shares facts based on many in depth investigations done by the newspaper, where shocking information is revealed about what food grade our next generation is eating on a daily basis.

Join us after the screening for a Q&A with director James Costa.
