Show Summary

Jamie Oliver has set himself the challenge of a lifetime—to take charge of 20,000 school lunches a day across one of London's most demanding areas as he campaigns to ban junk foods in schools and stop students from eating a quarter of a ton of French fries a week. If he succeeds in transforming the way kids eat, Jamie will use this experience to create a blueprint for school meals across the country.

Jamie's School Dinners finds Oliver taking on the school meals service of a Council-run secondary school in Greenwich, a London borough, as well as spending a month working with primary kids in a severely deprived part of Durham. After finding out what young people are eating for lunch, how it's prepared, and how on earth you cook for hundreds of kids at a time, Oliver works with the students and catering staff to steer students away from processed, pre-prepared meals towards healthier and more exciting choices such as wraps, Thai curries and fish pies. Jamie prepares the new meals from scratch daily with fiery school dinner lady, Nora.moreless
