Slow Food USA is “asking parents, teachers and every responsible citizen to speak up and tell our nation’s leaders that change can’t wait: It’s time to provide our children with REAL FOOD at school.”
Slow Food’s Time for Lunch campaign offers many ways to get involved: sign the petition, ask your friends to sign the petition, contact your legislators, post fliers, and finally, organize an Eat-In, which I intend to do. An Eat-In is “a potluck that takes place in public and gathers people to support a cause – like getting real food into schools.” Watch for details here at realfoodforschools.org.
If you can help find a location, print or distribute fliers, green it up, or otherwise promote/support this event, please let me know. And definitely save the date — lunch on September 7 — to show how important real food is for kids!
