Public Meeting Today for the future of School Lunch in LA
at the LAUSD Building at 4th and Beaudry – GOOGLE IT!
They Validate! ( Park in the Visconti Lot)
Hi All –
Quick alert – and sorry for the last minute notice . . . I just got this on my facebook page this morning, and you know how I feel about eating well… Especially our youngsters.
When: Today, the school board will vote on whether or not to approve the current $290m/five-year food services (processors) contract.
KIDS SHOULDN’T EAT PROCESSED FOOD – IT HURTS THEIR BRAIN
What you can do: Please consider signing up to speak for 3 minutes to share what you think about the current program, and ask the board to postpone the vote for an opportunity to have a larger dialogue with parents and community.
Where do you go: register at the school board conference room at 4th & Beaudry to speak at 1p
Parking: parking is validated in the Visconti lot.
If you do not wish to speak – you can give your time to others
I don’t know if I can make it – I’m teaching cooking class with 7th graders at that time. But I’m gonna try really hard to get there before it’s over. feel free to text me with updates – 310 850 1884.
It’s always a good day at the garden school. Especially Earth Day; check out these awesome hats made in honor of our mother.
Earth Day In the Garden
Last year, we got lots of fruit trees donated and they are flourishing this season.
We're baring fruit
Last week, when we foraged, the kids picked all the green peaches, nectarines and plums.
OOPS. Good thing fruit is like hair… It’ll grow back.
This week I’ll have a more specific direction when they start searching for their second lunch, “forage on the ground floor only.” No trees. It was a heartbreaking moment for me, but they had a good time doing it!
Getting ready for second lunch
Mama Botanica is at it again, and we’re spreading the word.
Screening of "Fresh"
This coming Wednesday 4.21.10 starting at 6 pm the Earth Day festivities begin! We’ll be screening “DIRT – The Movie” It’s the latest film about how we can save our dear mother earth. We actually catered the the screening a few weeks at the Pacific Design Center – a zero waste event of course.
So come on around – bring a potluck dish to share. Park on the street and walk down the driveway next to Cal Asia. I’ll be making a few vegan offerings and some delicious Magic Mambo Punch. A 5$ donation is suggested to cover eatwares and beverages. The movie will start around 7 pm.
our address 3048 Fletcher Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90065 – my phone – 323.982.0052 an RSVP would be greatly appreciated.
The Mystery Lunch Box Challenge is ON! Scheduled at Jefferson High on April 27th, May 4th, 11 and 13th as an after school offering, this crash course in teenage cooking survival skills is a BLAST!
Chef MB and the Junior Chefs
I’m looking for a couple more chefs to guide these amazing youth toward delicious whole foods with the use of a fry pan, herbs and your wonderful knowledge. (oh and some olive oil of course)
diggin in to those delicious plant based delicacies!
Please contact me if you can be of service (there is pay involved). Chefs must commit to all 4 sessions. ( the first being the introduction to the class and the last being the cook off.)
Still need a little inspiration to be of service? Check out this video.
I’m checking things off my list and one of them was a blog post about the Eat-In last September for Slowfood.
Lisa did a great review here. I added a few pictures and now… off my list !
