Time For Lunch a National Day of action to get Real Food in Schools.
Slow Food USA is staging a National Eat In to raise awareness and to get Real Food in Schools.
Join Slow Food Charlotte on Labor Day, September 7, 2009 from 5 until 8 PM at Common Market South. We will have beef brisket style bbq, slaw and veggie pizzas and the Common Market has beverages galore. Bring a salad, bring a dish or just show up and fend for yourself.
Come join us on your way back from your holiday. Come join us if you never left. Join the community and sign the online petition to make a difference for the nutrition of our kids in school.
Why? It’s about our children.
The Child Nutrition Act is a federal law that comes up for reauthorization in Congress every four to five years. It governs the National School Lunch Program, which sets the standard for the food that more than 30 million children eat every school day.
In the last few decades, as school budgets have been cut, our nation's schools have struggled to serve children the real food they need.
The deadline for reauthorizing the current Child Nutrition Act is September 2009. Unless we speak up this summer, “business as usual” on Capitol Hill will let Congress pass a Child Nutrition Act that continues to fail our children.
Come join us for a meal or just stop in for a bit. We’d love to hear your voice.
