Today is the first day of school for students in the Oakland, California public schools.
And come November, voters in that town have the chance to pass a bond that could go a long way to improving the quality of cafeteria food in this large, urban school district, where the vast majority of children qualify for free or reduced lunch.
If the ambitious plan is funded, then this city may well serve as a model for other school districts around the country trying to fix school food.
