Slow Food USA has organized Time for Lunch, a National Day of Action to get real food in schools and improve lunch standards. Just in time for the Child Nutrition Act's re-authorization this fall, Slow Food is ramping up support for their platform through "Eat-Ins" across the country.
When my Houston neighbor searched for a local Eat-In, simply a potluck with friends and neighbors, she came up dry. But being the Go-Getter she is, Kristin embarked on a grass roots effort to get her city on the map! So Houstonites if you're up for supporting a great cause [!] and willing to meet some incredible new friends [!!] join Kristin and crew by slowing down, eating local food and having one heck of a time.
