Celebrity chef and healthy school lunch advocate Jamie Oliver is filming his second season of the Emmy Award-winning Food Revolution in Los Angeles. However, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) refuses to show its school lunches on the program. In Oliver's own words, he can't get his foot into a single door. Students have voiced their disapointment that their school lunches won't benefit from the exposure and will likely remain "greasy" and "microwaved."
Oliver has opened a community kitchen in the L.A. area, and he had much success last season working with schools in West Virginia, who now cook most of their lunches from scratch using healthy ingredients. Step up, L.A., and let us see what you're serving. Let Food Revolution inside school cafeterias!
