On this edition of Your Call, we have a conversation with Jennifer Gaddis, author of the new book: The Labor of Lunch: Why We Need Real Food and Real Jobs in American Public Schools.

Gaddis explains the history of school lunches and how we let the private sector take control of what America’s youth eat at school. How can we make free, healthy, and ethically-sourced school lunches a reality for students across America?

Guests:

Jennifer E. Gaddis, assistant professor of Civil Society and Community Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison & author of The Labor of Lunch: Why We Need Real Food and Real Jobs in American Public Schools
