School lunch advocates get ready - "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" is back and there's no telling where this season will go. The doors to the schools appear to be closed.

The L.A. Times reported when filming wrapped in March, the Ryan Seacrest-produced show never did get entry to the Los Angeles Unified School District. In a letter canceling what is assumed to have been a deal, a rep from the superintendent’s office explained the district would continue working with its dieticians to improve the meals.

The core of the debut season of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” was the British chef’s battle with the school district and prominent locals. How can a message of teaching kids to eat better be so bad?

In the first season, the Naked Chef went to Huntington, West Virginia, to bring his message and mission of incorporating more fresh food into the schools’ cafeterias. He also opened a public kitchen offering free cooking lessons. The kitchen established by "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" is still going strong more than a year after filming wrapped.

The preview clearly shows the LAUSD superintendent refusing to allow the show access.

Oliver is taking to the streets to spread his message – if he can’t get into the schools, he’s going to have to find another way to get to the core of the problem.
