    “ Cafeteria Man ” is a story of positive movement that shows what's possible in our nation’s schools. It’s about the aspiration of activists and citizens coming together to change the way kids eat at school. It’s about overhauling a dysfunctional nutritional system. And, it’s the story of what it takes, and who it takes, to make solutions happen.

    Cafeteria Man Leading the charge to replace pre-plated, processed foods with locally-grown, freshly-prepared meals is Tony Geraci, food-service director for the city’s public schools in Baltimore, Maryland. A charismatic chef from New Orleans, Geraci’s bold vision includes school vegetable gardens, student-designed meals, meatless Mondays, and nutrition education in the classroom. Featuring Michael Pollan, First Lady Michelle Obama, and White House Chef Sam Kass. The film is directed by Emmy award-winner Richard Chisolm. The film is 65 minutes and suitable for middle school students and above.

    The star of the film, Tony Geraci, will be present for a discussion after the screening. The screening and discussion will be followed by tours of the Edible Schoolyard garden and kitchen, which is attached to the MLK Jr. Middle School – plus a food demo with Chef Tony!

    The Best Webinar Software Platforms of This Year

    Are you trying to find the most effective 2021 webinar software platforms? After hosting webinars and going to online conferences for several years I've put together a list with the best 24 webinar tools you can try in 2021.

    Webinars have replaced in-person meetings and seminars in the past year, even as the Covid-19 issue has gotten worse across the globe. Based on Global Webinar Statistics, nearly 75% of companies depend on webinars in order to generate leads for B2B. B2C is different. It is anywhere from 70% to 77%.

    The choice of a suitable online webinar platform can be a challenge sometimes as things can go wrong any time during the webcast. Insufficient network, issues downloading as well as unclear audio and video, non HD video, and other problems can be a challenge to choose the right web-based webinar service. These are a few issues to take into consideration when selecting a platform for hosting webinars.

    Are you satisfied with the quality of service?

    Are you satisfied with the sound quality and video?

    How many participants can join your webinar?

    What are the plugins like for attendees?

    How frustrating are extensions and downloads?

    Before you can host a webinar you have to research the complexities of questions. I made it easier by providing the pros and negatives, and key characteristics of the best webinar tools in 2021.

    Demio is a program I highly recommend. It works well when combined with WebinarJam and LiveStorm. WebinarJam is a great tool that makes my job more efficient. Before we proceed with the list of top webinar websites I've listed a few of my top choices.

    What exactly is Webinar Software?

    A webinar is primarily derived from the words"web" and "seminar. This is an interactive, live online event that is also recorded. Participants connected to the event via the internet can watch a presentation by the hosts about a particular subject.

    These online video conferences are managed through Webinar platform. They can be held in the form of seminars, lectures or live presentations. The conference is completely held online and only attended by a small group of people.

    The software used to host and run webinars is known as webinar software. These amazing webinar tools aid you in making your online meeting more engaging, flexible, and interactive.

    The great thing about it is that these tools are customizable. The user can adjust the program to suit their requirements. You can also make your own personal touches to your events.

    There are a variety of options for webinars which include Zoom, Webinarjam, and others. In addition, there's the free software that can be used for webinars like Google Hangouts.

    The most reliable software for webinars will not just allow you to organize a webinar, but also to record it to share it with others, follow up and turn potential customers to customers in a short time. It lets you broadcast high-quality live video and automates your sales process.

    There are also tools with built-in surveys, polls, email marketing software, live chats, along with many other helpful features.
