Movie screening + director Q&A: Lunch Hour

Join us for a screening of the film "Lunch Hour" at the Angelika Theater in Dallas. The film that "explores the National School Lunch Program, childhood obesity, and our addiction to unhealthy foods. It shows what schools, parents, authors, doctors, politicians, celebrities, and chefs are doing to problem solve this issue and help save the children of America."

The film features prominent vegan figures such as Dr. Neal Barnard, John Salley, and Robin Quivers.

BONUS: James Costa, the director of Lunch Hour, will be in attendance for a Q&A, provided enough tickets are sold.

BONUS #2: The very vegan-friendly restaurant, Trinity Hall, is right next to the Angelika. We'll head there for dinner, drinks, and discussion after the film!

IMPORTANT: If you plan to attend, you must purchase your ticket using the following link ASAP:

If enough tickets aren't sold, we'll unfortunately have to cancel the event. This is a great movie for those with children (and even those without - children are our future, and we are all paying, whether we have kids or not!).

    I agree with Monica the staff from the school was more interested in defending their school. They completely missed the point 9 the film. Let's say they did serve healthy food, good for them help other districts do the same. What I heard are the foods being served those are not healthy foods. I thought it was funny her defense wad the chips are baked. I enjoyed the film but I wished they focused on the process of helping make the changes.

      People will always feel threatened when you speak about something that is close to them. The one parent who said that the things that were being served we're not healthy unfortunately was in the minority of the group. But it only takes one voice to start a chain reaction. Hopefully this opened up a discussion that they can take back to their school and back to the parents to start making some changes. There are resources in the booklet that was given out to everyone as well as on the website for the movie.

    Thanks to all that attended. I am so happy at the turn out and those that participated in the Q&A after the screening. Knowledge is power. Please get involved with your local schools to bring awareness and change. Even if you don't have children (I don't), you can help. Future generations depend on your action.

      It was a great documentary. I was aware the school food industry is overall corrupt. I'm really hoping others watch it, there was still people in the audience from a school during the q&a who thought there schools meals were good because it's not fried. But, i dont care if its fried or not, It's mostly processed crap. So I really think many adults are clueless about what is healthy. It's sad.
