If you haven't had time to read Free for All: Fixing School Food in American, the definitive guide to how the nation's cafeterias ended up in the mess they're in now, an excellent interview with the author, sociologist Janet Poppendieck, has recently appeared in two parts.
The interview covers a lot of territory succinctly but in enough detail to give a good grounding in the many issues of concern in the school food landscape. The first part is here, the second part here.
Then, read the book and you'll understand why your local lunch ladies need all the help they can get.
