Time for Lunch - Napa Valley Slow Food
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.
Our voices will be heard via a national Eat-in, held locally. An Eat-in is a potluck put together to discuss the issues, invite politicians, school boards and teachers, community members, parents, children, and anyone who cares about providing our future with proper nutrition and locally grown food whilst enjoying a meal together.
Our Eat-in will be a BRUNCH at Ehlers Winery in St Helena under the olive grove. If you sign up to join us please let Chris know at firstname.lastname@example.org what dish you will prepare for 8 people.
