HEALTHY Muskegon Network Meeting
On Thursday, January 31, we hosted a screening and discussion about Cafeteria Man. The 60 minute documentary shared the story of Tony Geraci’s efforts to revolutionize food service in Baltimore Public Schools. A lively and interesting discussion with area Food Service Directors followed by a sampling of the new school lunch items being served at Reeths Puffer School District’s Pennsylvania Elementary in partnership with Mia & Grace. (They were on TV!) Thanks to all who attended and made this an interesting and thought-provoking event.
