Nettelshort screens Lunch Line movie

For those interested in a school lunch food revolution:

The Nettelhorst Community Group is hosting a movie and discussion on school nutrition on Thursday, February 17, 2011, 7:00 p.m., in the Nettelhorst Auditorium, 3252 N. Broadway, Chicago, IL 60657.
The event will start with a screening of the documentary Lunch Line.  Lunch Line reframes the debate over school nutrition through an examination of the school lunch program’s surprising past, uncertain present, and possible future. Following the 65-minute film we will  discuss the future of nutrition in Chicago Public Schools with the film’s directors and a panel of experts.
The movie will be shown next Thursday, February 17, 2011, 7:00 p.m., in the Nettelhorst Auditorium.
You can get more information on the event and see a trailer from the movie here:
Tickets are $5 online and $7 at the door. They can be purchased here:
For more information email or call (312) 945-6190 for more information.

FYI, Representatives from Chartwells­Thompson Hospitality have agreed to attend the movie screening next week.  Chartwells is the vendor that provides food for all of CPS and Robert Bloomer, the Regional Vice President who handles the CPS contract for the company, will appear on the panel.

From Nettelhorst rep:  The obvious issue to discuss since Chartwells will be at the table is the universal breakfast policy.  We will address it in the panel discussion and include questions from the audience.  But we see that conversation as an extension of the discussion of the film.  We could spend all evening talking about the breakfast policy but our goal is to include it in a larger conversation about the forces that shape what kids eat at school.
