Explore school lunch around the world on the season finale of Inside School Food. Why are we so riveted by pictures of school meals in other countries? Perhaps because it's a shared experience the world over, and perhaps because these images are so rich in information. "Unpack a school lunch," writes guest Andrea Curtis, author of What's For Lunch: How Schoolchildren Eat Around the World, "and you’ll discover that food is connected to issues that matter to everyone—things such as climate change, health, and inequality." This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

If you're old enough, you remember the days when "cafeteria ladies" had a craft and the food at school was hand made, right down to the dinner rolls. After decades of moving away from that proud tradition, districts are slowly returning to it. In Maryland, a stand-out "boot camp" for food service workers statewide teaches basic cookery, nutrition science, professional kitchen protocols, and much more. It's a model for training programs that are emerging all over the nation as schools work their way forward (and back) to more real, fresh food in the cafeteria. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"The folks that attend our training are trained on how to train and then there's a ripple effect." [05:30]

School gardens are now being embraced nationwide, as is farm-to-school. But school garden-to-cafeteria? It's what's coming next--well-established in some districts, in fact, which offer valuable resources to beginners. Concerned about food safety? Funding? Whether or not to buy student-grown or accept it as a donation? Is it worth the trouble--does it interest children in eating more produce, trying new fruits and veggies? The nation's two leading experts, from Colorado and Oregon, discuss all this and more. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"Everyone along the supply chain of school food should get their fair equal prices. There are costs to school gardens. Right now districts don't pay for much of those costs." [18:00]

"What we develop in Denver needs to be a template - the beginning of a conversation in your own county." [25:00]
