2013 Best of Festival
“Cafeteria Man” is a story of positive movement that shows what’s possible in our nation’s schools. It’s about the aspiration of activists and citizens coming together to change the way kids eat at school. It’s about overhauling a dysfunctional nutritional system. And, it’s the story of what it takes, and who it takes, to make solutions happen.
Leading the charge to replace pre-plated, processed foods with locally-grown, freshly-prepared meals is Tony Geraci, food-service director for the city’s public schools in Baltimore, Maryland. A charismatic chef from New Orleans, Geraci’s bold vision includes school vegetable gardens, student-designed meals, meatless Mondays, and nutrition education in the classroom. Featuring Michael Pollan, First Lady Michelle Obama, and White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass.”Cafeteria Man” is a story of positive movement that shows what’s possible in our nation’s schools.

About the Wild & Scenic Film Festival
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) started the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival to promote community building within the Yuba Watershed, as well as a way to explore environmental issues through an exciting and influential medium. In 2004, environmental groups started asking SYRCL to bring the festival to their community. In 2011, the film festival will reach over 100 venues nationwide. The Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival kicks-off its nationwide tour each year, in Nevada City, CA. We look forward to sharing these films to the local Tahoe community this April, in celebration of Earth Day.
