FREE SCREENING OF CAFETERIA MAN ON SEPTEMBER 19

The PEI Home and School Federation is presenting a free screening of the film

CAFETERIA MAN on Monday, September 19, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the Culinary

Institute Lecture Theatre at 4 Sydney Street in Charlottetown.

Cafeteria Man asks the question “How can we reform school food programs so

that they serve more nutritious and tasty meals for our kids, and are also more

sustainable for our communities?”

The film tells the story of chef Tony Geraci’s ambitious efforts in Baltimore City’s

Public Schools, a large district that serves 83,000 students. Responding to student

complaints, Geraci launched a sweeping, multi-faceted plan to transform not just what

students eat, but their whole relationship to food. His vision included student-designed

meals, locally sourced foods, nutrition education in the classroom, and school vegetable

gardens.

The film screening is part of the PEI Home and School Federation’s own project

to introduce a universal free school lunch program in all Prince Edward Island schools,

the subject of a unanimous resolution at the organization’s 2015 Annual General

Meeting.

The screening is jointly sponsored by the PEI Home and School Federation and

the Culinary Institute of Canada.
