We’ve said it before, I’m saying it again, and we will probably say it again before the month is out: It’s time to change school lunch. Not in a nebulous wouldn’t-it-be-nice way, but in a concrete Congress is scheduled to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act in September, and it’s time to show them that we care way.
You aren’t a kid? You don’t have kids? Think school lunch doesn’t affect you? Think again, and while you’re at it, check out my posts on the topic — Why a Twenty-Something Should Care About School Lunch for the blog Civil Eats and No More School Lunch Baloney for the Slow Food blog.
The quality of school lunch affects everyone in America, whether or not you or your child is eating it. So please, read up, sign the Time for Lunch petition, and organize or attend an Eat-In on September 7th.
