Slow Food USA is sponsoring a Time for Lunch campaign this fall. One goal of the campaign is to send a message to our community leaders that we care about improving the quality of food in school lunches. Another is to provide opportunities for people around the country who are passionate about getting better food into schools to get in touch with one another and build social networks for change.
As part of that campaign, Cynthia Walters of Shanahan Middle School, just northeast of Powell off of Route 23, is spearheading an “eat-in”—a group of people gathering to share a home-cooked meal—at her school on Sunday, September 20th, from 2-4 p.m. (welcome address at 2:15 p.m.) Slow Food USA and Slow Food Columbus would like to invite you to join us at this event.
The requirements are simple. The first thing that you need to do is RSVP (it doesn’t cost anything, but we do need to know how many people will be attending before the event starts, so it’s important that you sign up). The second thing that you need to do is bring a healthy, nutritious, home-cooked dish to share. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, though ideally it would reflect Slow Food’s emphasis on food that’s good, clean and fair.
Bring your family, bring your friends, bring a blanket or chairs to sit on the lawn if the weather’s nice, and bring your voice. It’s time that it was heard.
