As nation-wide funding for school cafeterias rapidly decreases, and high-calorie, low-nutrient meals have become order of the day, our nation's children are being afflicted by a slew of diet-based diseases. In LUNCH, a revealing short documentary, director Avis Richards investigates the causes and consequences of "growing up in a junk-food culture." Through numerous on-site interviews with food workers, doctors, educators, and students, LUNCH provides a candid, penetrating, and disturbing account of the National School Lunch Program's failure to promote the proper dietary habits for our youth's well-being.
