Elysian Park Labor Day Eat-In: Improve lunches in schools

Local caterer Jennie Cook is helping organize Slow Food's Time for Lunch Eat-in at Elysian Park on Labor Day, and hopefully the skies will be much clearer by then. The potluck picnic is in support of improving the Child Nutrition Act, which is up for approval by Congress in September and sets the standards for school lunches. Slow Food isn't just an elitist, let's-eat-our-heirloom tomatoes-in-Ojai organization -- it's active with Slow Food in Schools helping all public school children learn about eating and growing real food instead of the frankly disgusting stuff most schools are still doling out. The Eat-In is 11:30 - 2:30 at the Chavez Ravine Arboreteum.
