Slow Food Phoenix Prompts Congress to Serve Kids 'Real' School Lunch
- Monday, September 7, 11am - 2pm
- Arizona State Fairgrounds - Wesley Bolin Center 1826 W. McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85007
Join Slow Food Phoenix, local politicians, celebrity chefs, parents and children in sending a message to Congress that we can build a strong foundation for our children's health by serving real food at school.
In a time of escalating obesity and diabetes epidemics, our schools are serving children precisely the fast food and junk food that endangers their health.
The Time for Lunch Eat-In will be a bring-your-own picnic to draw attention to the need for Congress to pass a better Child Nutrition Act that brings real food to schools!
The Eat-In is part of a National Day of Action when thousands of people across the country will share a meal to demonstrate our commitment to getting real food in school lunches.
