Happy National School Lunch Week!

This week is the national School Nutrition Association's National School Lunch Week. Parents, take a day off from making lunch this week and ask your kid to eat cafeteria food to support efforts by the DOE's Office of SchoolFood to make school lunches healthier, more local, and more appealing. Kids, you can vote for your favorite nutritious school lunch.

And for the Connecticut-based "Two Angry Moms," this week is also the National School Lunch-In. They want parents to "do lunch" with their kids this week to talk about nutrition and investigate the healthiness of school lunches. The two moms, a rabblerouser and a documentary filmmaker, have also made a movie about school lunches that they say "offers an inside look at what’s on the menu in many of the nation’s school cafeterias." The movie is currently being screened in house parties; you can sign up to host a viewing party in your home.
