Time for Lunch at Las Lomas
The eat in at Las Lomas was a success! The food was delicious, the conversations stimulating and all activity was in support of healthy school lunch. Most of the attendees were new to Slow Food and we happily received pledges from several new members and some people joined up on the spot. We got 25 new signatures on the Slow Food petition for real food at school.
We heard about school gardens in Bay Point from Debbie and Lee Mason who do an amazing job with an inspirational and big project. Debbie talked about her support for changes in the Child Nutrition Act. It was wonderful to gain support from unexpected places and to see so many new faces.
Many thanks to Whole Foods Walnut Creek, Frog Hollow Farm and Knoll Farms for their sponsorship and support. We couldn't have done this without them. Also, many thanks to all members of the Head Table. Special thanks to Lucy Meinhardt and Lesley Stiles who performed well beyond the call of duty.
