In 2011, fourth grader Zachary Maxwell asked his parents if he could take his own lunch to school. But his parents, who were assured by the NYC Department of Education website that the meals served at the school were nutritious, kept insisting he should take advantage of the delicious sounding lunches offered at school. But when Zachary arrives at school, he finds a very different reality. Armed with a hidden video camera, he sets out to convince his parents that the food being served at school is far different from what is being described via the online menu.
Follow Zachary as he embarks on a six month covert mission to expose the truth about the City’s school food service program.
