Slow Food USA has a brilliant idea: Get people involved in letting our law makers know that we demand healthier and fresh foods in school cafeterias.
With childhood obesity at an all time high and diabetes 2 striking school age children, it’s time to serve fresh, green, and wholesome food as part of a daily diet and the educational process.
On September 7 (Labor Day) join an Eat-In to get involved.
Find out if there is an Eat-In near you or start your own. As I write this, there are 252 eat-ins, at least one in every state!
Also sign the petition, so you can tell Congress that there’s no excuse for federal policy that forces schools to serve the fast food and junk food that endangers children’s health. It’s time to give schools the ability to serve real food, and to begin building a strong foundation for your children’s futures.
