LA Schools Refuse To Let Jamie Oliver Expose Their Lunches

As mentioned yesterday, Jamie Oliver kicks off filming today for the second season of his Emmy-award winning series “Food Revolution”. In an effort to combat obesity, the celebrity chef will show families how to affordably re-create meals that use local and fresh ingredients only. As in the first season, he also wants to visit local schools — but so far, the Los Angeles Unified School District is refusing to allow his cameras into cafeterias; saying that they’re not interested in the “drama of reality TV”.

In an interview with the LA Times, Oliver believes their fear more stems from how their cafeterias would appear on television — nothing that his work has been honorable and that he came to Los Angeles with no preconceptions about its school food. “Ultimately, I still think what happens in schools in food is an incredible weapon or problem in terms of the obesity epidemic,” Oliver said.

A Los Angeles Unified School District spokesperson said that there would be no change of heart — which only adds to the mystery of what they’re hiding behind those cafeteria doors.

Undeterred, Oliver plans on filming his work with families, as well as supermarkets and fast-food establishments, for episodes set to air this spring.
