The Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School, 1600 Guilford Avenue, will be holding a screening of the MFF 2011 documentary film selection, CAFETERIA MAN, this Friday, February 10, 2012 at 6pm.
CAFETERIA MAN is a feature-length documentary that chronicles an ambitious effort by students, social activists and chef/food service director Tony Geraci to ‘green’ the public school diet serving 83,000 students in Baltimore.
It’s about the aspiration of social activists and citizens coming together to change the way kids eat at school. It’s about overhauling a dysfunctional nutritional system. And, it’s the story of what it takes, and who it takes, to make solutions happen.
This film played at the 2011 Maryland Film Festival.
Advance tickets are $10 and can be purchased online here, or can be purchased the day of the show for $15 at the door.
Doors open at 6pm for complimentary appetizers created by BMPCS students using fresh ingredients provided by the Mt. Washington Whole Foods and screening the 30 minute MICA documentary BFED.
CAFETERIA MAN starts promptly at 7pm. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion with the film makers, BMPCS school food educators and advocates, and a City Schools Food Services representative to talk about what’s happened since the film and what is the progress on the goal of getting healthier foods into school meals and, especially, into students.
All proceeds will go to benefit the Baltimore Montessori Seed to Table Program. For questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org
