National Day of Action to Get Real Food in Schools – Labor Day, Sept. 7



 
Labor Day, Monday, September 7th
from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Front lawn of Baldwin High School, Wailuku

Time for Lunch is a national “Eat-In” of big, community pot-lucks to highlight the need to get real food into our schools.

Slow Food USA and its chapters nationwide have organized this event to encourage parents, teachers and citizens to urge our nation’s leaders to update the Child Nutrition Act NOW and provide children with real food in schools.

You are invited to join us and bring a homemade dish (as small as enough for two—they just want you to come!)
They’ll make it easy for you to write a letter, send an e-mail, make a phone call to our legislators urging them to insist on real food in our schools.
