Lunch Encounters of the Third Kind

One Tray, One Nation

One Tray, the national campaign to improve child nutrition by encouraging a more direct connection between local farms and federal nutrition, launched two short videos that explain the significance school food has in kids’ diets and seeks to ensure that those calories consumed are healthy ones. “Lunch Encounters,” a spoof of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and “Priceless,” a MasterCard parody, were created by Shalini Kantayya, of 7th Empire Media, Nicole Betancourt, of Parent Earth, and Debra Eschmeyer, of National Farm to School Network. The goal is to raise awareness of Farm to School for the upcoming reauthorization of federal child nutrition programs by depicting the cafeteria tray as the centerpiece for a reformed school food system that supports healthy children, local farms and smart schools.
