The Rehoboth Beach Film Society will present a screening of an informative documentary titled “Cafeteria Man” as a part of the 2012-13 On Screen/In Person film tour, which brings filmmakers and their films together to participating communities. The screening will take place at 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 23, in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway.
This engaging profile tells the true story of a rebellious, charismatic chef from New Orleans, Tony Geraci, and his mission to radically reform Baltimore’s public school food system by replacing pre-plated, processed food with locally grown, freshly prepared meals. The film, which features best-selling food writer Michael Pollan, and first lady and children’s nutrition advocate Michelle Obama, follows two years of struggles and breakthroughs in the making of real social change in a challenging urban setting with national ramifications. Geraci’s recipe for change takes him - and the audience - from Baltimore to the halls of Congress and the White House. This film was first screened at the 2011 Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival.
