I was prompted to put this list together today after seeing a New York Times article about an eleven-year-old who is debuting a movie he made about New York City school lunches. He used a hidden camera for six months and came up with “Yuck: A 4th Grader’s Short Documentary About School Lunch.”
Here’s the trailer:

It reminded me a bit of the famous nine-year old in Scotland and her Never Seconds blog. The blog has really taken an international flavor recently.
And then there was the teacher who “ate 162 school lunches — and blogged it.” You can read her blog, Fed Up With Lunch.
I’m personally impressed by the work our school’s Food Justice class did about school lunches in Sacramento, written about in this Sacramento Bee article.
Here are some related links from my The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures list:
