Eat Slow With Your Kids this Labor Day
It might be a holiday, but this Labor Day, there will be symbolic food fights across the country. The Child Nutrition Act is up for its five-year Congressional renewal this September and the health-conscious gourmands at Slow Food USA want to see some fundamental changes in the ways the nation’s children are fed and educated about food in schools. As part of its Time for Lunch Campaign, the group is organizing a “National Eat-In” on September 7, a month from today.
“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.”
Slow Food USA is national advocacy group that hopes to change how food is produced and consumed by linking the “pleasure of food with a commitment to community and environment.”
