   schema:description "School food suddenly finds itself at the forefront of contemporary debates about healthy eating, social inclusion, environmental sustainability and local economic development. The starting point of The School Food Revolution is that school meal systems can provide significant payoffs, including lower food miles, creation of markets for local producers and effective food education initiatives that empower consumers by nurturing their capacity to eat healthily. To assess this potential, the book compares a variety of sites involved in the school food revolution - from rural communities committed to the values of 'the local' to global cities such as London, New York and Rome that feed millions of ethnically diverse young people daily. The book also examines the developing country school feeding programme of the United Nations, which sees nutritious food as an end in itself, as well as a means to meeting the Millennium Development Goals and raising the quality of life of the poor" ;
