On behalf of a group of concerned citizens, I would like to invite you to participate in a public
potluck on Monday, September 7 in Kansas City, Missouri. I hope you will consider joining us on this important day.
On September 7, a group of Missouri constituents are organizing a public potluck (we call it an “Eat-In”) to demonstrate that the Kansas City Metro area is ready to provide our children with real food at school. This event is just one of hundreds taking place across America as part of the Time for Lunch National Eat-In.
What: Kansas City "Time for Lunch" Eat-In (community potluck)
Date: Labor Day- Monday, September 7, 2009
When: 12 noon- ?
Where: Border Star Montessori School-near the playground
6321 Wornall Road, KCMO
To stick with the ritual of a potluck, please bring a home-cooked dish to contribute to the community lunch feast. We will also have a solar cooker and grill (s?) on site as well. You are also invited to bring reusable utensils, plates, and cups, along with a contagious smile. Please be aware this potluck is NOT exclusive to parents or Missouri constituents, so pass this information on and join us if you live nearby.
If you can't join us, here are some other things you can do:
"School lunch isn’t just about the food. It’s also about what food means in culture and communities. A good school lunch program teaches kids that food matters—how it’s produced, what gets done with it, and how it is consumed. These are important lessons that ought to be in every curriculum. "
