The Big Island (with two locations in Waimea and Waikoloa) joined 250 groups in all 50 states today in a National Day of Action to get REAL FOOD in the schools spearheaded by Slow Food USA. No more Tater Tots? No more Mystery Meat? Ahhh... such fond memories of school lunches... NOT!
I am sure the Tater Tots will be safe for a while as the task at hand is to get the U.S. Congress to change the Child Nutrition Act to dedicate enough resources for the schools to buy REAL FOOD. SIGN THE PETITION.
Our local "eat in" at Waimea School was great. The cafeteria was full and the local food was great- lots of fresh, local food prepared lovingly by many hands.
