we took action!

On Labor Day 2009, over 100 concerned parents, farmers, chefs and food citizens gathered at Rain Lily farm as guests of Slow Food USA/Slow Food Austin to show support for getting REAL FOOD in school cafeterias.

Thank you for joining us at Rain Lily Farm on Labor Day for the Slow Food Austin Eat-In Potluck!

We took action: Over 100 people came together to enjoy the potluck and discuss school meal issues. 28 letters calling for change through the Child Nutrition Act were signed at the event and immediately sent to representatives. Over 80 signatures were added to the Slow Food USA petition advocating for REAL FOOD in schools.

Our chapter President, Sara Weber, was interviewed by our local public radio station, KUT.

The movement continues: to learn more about how you can help get Real Food into our schools visit Slow Food USA’s Time for Lunch site.

One thought on “we took action!”

  1. I was really blessed to have raw goat’s milk delivered when my daughters were young. We also raised our own fresh produce, chickens and turkeys. Later had our own Nubian milking does.Children need good nutrition in schools and at home.
