Eat In at Las Lomas High School


Join us for a community pot-luck picnic at Las Lomas High School in Walnut Creek.

This event is free!

We are gathering in support of healthy school lunches. This is one of over 200 eat-ins being staged across the US on September 7 this year to send a message to Congress. As a national day of action, Slow Food is hoping to persuade our members of Congress to increase funding to school lunches and make a commitment to improving the quality of food served to our children every day.

Bring your friends and family! For the month of September only,new donations to Slow Food at any level will provide a one-year membership in Slow Food USA. This is a wonderful time to join Slow Food and support good, clean and fair food.

So gather with neighbors and others who share your views on feeding our children and have fun at Las Lomas on September 7.
