It was recently reported that angry students were Tweeting photos of their less-than-appetizing school lunches to First Lady Michelle Obama, founder of the “Let’s Move” campaign to end childhood obesity. Not only were the portions small—a result of the new, lower calorie guidelines—but some would question whether the matter photographed on the trays really constitutes food at all, let alone healthy food. The terrible state of school lunches can be linked directly to bureaucratic mismanagement on the part of the capitalist state and the private interests that stand to make enormous profits by selling food products to the government.
