Rise Documentary Series: Eat Up

Time and Date: 
Thursday, February 27, 2020 - 6:30pm
East End Theatre

EAT UP is a story of power, food, and the future of children, and how hard it can be in America to do the right thing in the face of unwieldy regulations and corporate interests. EAT UP ripples from Boston to cafeterias across the nation, offering a model for healthy eating and how to navigate the politics of our most difficult terrain: public schools.

The initiative was driven by women: a headstrong entrepreneur, a well-meaning bureaucrat, an impassioned principal, and an indomitable cafeteria manager who leads her team of lunch ladies as the order unravels around them. We follow their journey as they laugh and cry, as they deconstruct and then reconstruct a system that is so deeply entrenched and has so many depending on its success.
