What do Labor Day and school lunches have in common? Hopefully, quite a bit.
The Child Nutrition Act is up for its five-year Congressional renewal this September, and the folks at Slow Food USA want to get people talking about it and the changes we need to make in the way kids are fed and educated about food in schools. So they've organized a “National Eat-In” to be held this Labor Day, Sept. 7. From their website:
“On Labor Day, Sept. 7, 2009, people in communities all over the country will sit down to share a meal with their neighbors and kids. This National Eat-In will send a clear message to Congress: It's time to provide America's children with real food at school.”
Sounds like an excellent way to make this Labor Day a fun, green, and meaningful day off!
