Yuck

Runtime: 19m 42s | Release date: 2012

Zachary is a fourth grader at a large New York City public elementary school. Each day he reads the Department of Education lunch menu online to see what is being served. The menu describes delicious and nutritious cuisine that reads as if it came from the finest restaurants. However, when Zachary gets to school, he finds a very different reality. Armed with a concealed video camera and a healthy dose of rebellious courage, Zachary embarks on a six-month covert mission to collect video footage of his lunch and expose the truth about the City's school food service program. This short documentary provides a fun and spirited insider's perspective on the elementary school lunchroom.

Featuring:
Zachary Maxwell

I used to volunteer in our local school canteen, needless to say not anymore as I refuse to serve poison to our kids!

I'm so proud of Zachary and the research he did, at school, home, and at the library to create this documentary. Little Lucas was a great lab assistant also. I didn't think school lunches could get worse than they were when I was young (bowl of peanuts with a glazed donut (dripping with wet glaze) sitting on top of it along with a slice of pizza and tater tots), but it looks like they have.
