TED - Food Quality, Local Food, and School Lunches

http://www.ted.com/talks/ann_cooper_talks_school_lunches.html

I watched this video several days ago, so I don't clearly remember why I marked it to post here at CM.com.  I do know that she talks about using local food for school lunches, and generally helping children get a better understanding and closer relationship with food.  I believe this relates to both energy and environment particularly, considering the manufacturing and transportation necessary for much of the food served in schools.  She also talks a little bit (I think) about making it economically viable, so I suppose its got that other E in there too.

Ann Cooper covers a lot of ground in this video, from health of the planet, to governement subsidizing, but moves fast.

It's about 20 minutes.

My favorite quote: "Chicken is not a giraffe."
