Compact, entertaining, and packing an unusually substantial political dimension, LUNCH LINE follows a group of contest-winning Chicago culinary students on a trip to Washington, D.C. Their journey is interwoven with a fascinating account of how the School Lunch Program (called America's most successful social program after Social Security) has been a political football between liberals and conservatives for over 60 years.

A panel discussion follows the screening featuring Rochelle Davis, Healthy Schools Campaign; Jean Saunders, Chartwells; Michael Graziano, Co-Director of LUNCH LINE; and Dan Schnitzer, Director of Sustainability & Operations Academy for Global Citizenship. The panel will be moderated by Monica Eng of the Chicago Tribune.
