Help get “real” food into schools by hosting an EatingWell potluck on Labor Day, September 7, 2009 as part of Slow Food USA’s National Eat-In. The Eat-In is part of Slow Food USA’s Time for Lunch campaign. As part of the campaign, Slow Food is lobbying Congress to allocate an additional $1 per day per child for healthier lunch items, to limit the junk food sold in schools and to teach children about food through farm-to-school programs and school gardens.
Gather your friends and neighbors in support of this effort for a healthy potluck featuring some of these delicious EatingWell recipes. Find more info, including how to organize a Time for Lunch Eat-In in your community, at www.slowfoodusa.org/timeforlunch.
