This book is a perfect culmination of Mrs. Q's (Sarah Wu's) quest to expose the underbelly of the American school lunch program. While it is extremely important to discuss and reward successes it is also vital that the failures of American policy are brought to light. Wu is an eloquent writer and states her case for school lunch reform in a very sensible way. As a follower of the blog I really enjoyed the personal background stories that are scattered throughout the book. Wu is an essential part of the school lunch reform fight because she is a teacher first and reformer second. It is abundantly clear that her students, and those throughout the nation, come first in every situation. The geek in me also wants to point out that the book has footnotes! These are verifiable facts that you are able to further research! Research! Readers will also enjoy the funnier blog posts that are used throughout the book and the collage in the middle of the book is just stunning. I would personally recommend flipping through the pictures first and then reading the rest of the book to get the best effect. Finally a portion of the proceeds from the book go to Farm to School, a great organization which promotes the health of children, the environment, and local communities. You won't be upset that you bought this.

Get involved with what you and your family eats. Shocking that children are fed this sort of garbage. Nothing nurishing, just fake food full of chemicals
