I watched Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution the other night, and while I fully support the idea of feeding children better food, I’m a wee bit unhappy with Mr. Oliver. You see, he’s publicly shamed the LA school district. He’s painted them as this big, evil monster – essentially a dastardly corporation. Watch the show, you’ll see what I mean. He’s given the district a healthy dose of bad PR, and it’s going to cost them to fix their image.
And they are guilty of trying to keep him out of school kitchens. They are guilty of trying to pinch pennies and continue feeding children horrible food. But they’ve got a damn good reason.
