The politics of school lunch, and the value of care.

Social ecologist Jennifer Gaddis explores the politics of school lunch in America - as a site of struggle over the value of both workers' labor and children's nutrition from the 19th century through the neoliberal era, and a revolutionary starting place to expand care and create healthier people and communities.

Jennifer is author of The Labor of Lunch: Why We Need Real Food and Real Jobs in American Public Schools from University of California Press.
