Definitely dry, but really interesting if you're fascinated by school lunches!

It's pretty detailed foray into every aspect of school lunches from reimbursement rates to nutritional standards to the policy fights over the years. Starts with the history of national school lunch program in the early 1900s and details how the great depression and wwii fundamentally shaped the system as well as the cuts in the 80s, the war on fat in the 90s, and budget cuts throughout.

I learned quite a bit and enjoyed the stories and anecdotes throughout!
