Two Angry Moms is a documentary that asks the question: What happens when fed-up moms try to change school food? There are nearly seventy-three million school-aged children in America. The Centers for Disease Control predict that these children will be the first generation in history to live shorter lives than those of their parents. Two Angry Moms takes a look at the school food programs responsible for a large portion of each child’s daily meals and explores the roles the federal government, corporate interest, school administration and parents play in the feeding of our country’s school kids. The film offers successful and often inspirational examples of how to improve school food programs and make a difference in both the health of each child and the long-term health of the country.

USA, 2007, 86 min. • Director: Amy Kalafa
