    Eat Up

    Eat Up is an eye-opening account on the abject state of school lunch programs and one entrepreneur’s yearlong mission to prove that she can improve the nutritional value of school lunches while offering food that students will actually want to eat.

    FILM SYNOPSIS

    Twenty million kids across the United States rely on the lunches they receive free at school as their main source of nutrition. Often, the food is so unappetizing it ends up in the trash.

    In Eat Up an entrepreneur sets out to reinvent school food, to challenge the way Boston’s public school students eat lunch. Over a yearlong journey, she wrangles with bureaucracy, unwieldy regulations and a team of stalwart lunch ladies to navigate a path to replace plastic-wrapped vended meals with fresh, healthy food cooked from scratch that changes the way kids both eat and learn.
