Yesterday I attended a Labor Day Potluck inspired by Slow Food USA. The focus of this potluck was on healthy food for kids, particularly in school lunches. Many factors in Somerville favor Slow Food values of good, clean and fair food. Groundwork Somerville sponsors community gardens, including one at most every school. Students do get to eat the vegetables and herbs they grow in the school garden. Nutrition researchers at Tufts have also worked in the Somerville schools, getting quite a bit of national attention for Somerville, including three pages in .
But it’s not all about Somerville! There’s still a chance to go to similarly themed eat-ins, for example a happy hour in Manhattan tonight. Just check on the Slow Food in Schools USA website. Here’s to our health and our children’s health!
