Eat in for Slow Food
Moira and I just got home from an Eat in demonstration at the Fair Share Garden. We gathered to promote healthy food for children's school lunches. We enjoyed some lovely blue berry whole wheat pancakes, pumpkin muffins, fresh vegetables, herbal tea, yogurts and more. I learned today that all of the Florida schools are contracted with a distributor who delivers California produce. Fair Share would like for kids to have the opportunity to grow food in school gardens. Slow Food USA is asking congress to increase the budget for school lunches so that schools can afford healthy foods for kids instead of cheap junk food like tater tots. If you agree please add your name to the petition.
