Please Vote--For fresh and local food in Baltimore Schools!

A Recipe for Change is a new documentary that chronicles the efforts of Tony Geraci, food service director for Baltimore City Schools, to transform the way Baltimore City kids eat at school. Mr. Geraci's goal is to replace the processed food served in the Baltimore City Schools with fresh, locally grown food--all 83,000 meals a day! His bold vision also includes a vegetable garden at every school, student-designed meals, meatless Mondays, and nutrition education in the classroom.

In the movie, Michael Pollen, the best-selling author of The Omnivore's Dilemma, says, "If Tony makes this happen here the way he wants to, I think you’ll see this happening all over the country."

A Recipe for Change is competing to win $50,000 from Pepsi's Refresh Project. The funds would be used for final editing and distribution. The deadline for voting is March 31st. Please follow this link and vote for fresh food in Baltimore City Schools!
