Alright, so I skimmed through a lot of this and bailed out early. Truth is, if you're pretty well versed on the state of food these days, the agricultural laws and outcomes of those laws that got us in the mess we're in, there's not a ton of new info to get out of this book. Most notably, the history and laws pertaining to school food specifically were a departure from the more generalized food-centric books I tend to read, as well as the mess that is keeping school lunches in line with the tangled mess of nutritional guidelines, exempt student lunches and picky eaters that populate school cafeterias. Bottom line: If you read the relevant news articles as they pop up on similar issues, Poppendieck won't deliver you any epiphanies, but she'll certainly flesh out your understanding of the complicated world of school cafeterias.
