Posts Tagged ‘school lunches’

I have been on the food committee at the kids’ school this year, trying to make little changes in the school lunches…things like sourcing local natural milk, local freshly baked breads, less desserts, more home made meals. You get the idea. Our goal is to get as much of our ingredients from local farmers as we can – and preferably naturally or organically grown and raised. We keep plugging away. Inch be inch.

On Thursday, November 10th at 6:30, St. Paul’s is hosting a public screening of Food, Inc. followed by a a panel discussion with a great list of community experts. So, not only can you see this thought provoking movie, you get an opportunity to ask questions from people like:

  • Beth Low, Director of the Greater Kansas City Food Policy Coalition
  • Joe Bichelmeyer, owner of local meat processing company and butcher, Bichelmeyer Meats
  • Kim wells, fitness and nutrition expert and speaker
  • Leigh Wagner, Integrative Medical Nutrition Therapy at KU Med Center
  • Katie Nixon, small farm specialist, consultant and advocate
  • Chef Joy, chef of Bistro Kids, a local company that provides organic/natural school lunches to participating schools
  • Shane Hanson, Director of Door to Door Organics Kansas City office

Wondering which foods you should be most concerned with? Interested in understanding how the meat processing industry really works? Don’t know how to access local, natural ingredients? How about getting a few ideas about how to make small changes at home?

Not only can you ask these questions, you can WIN gift certificates to some super awesome restaurants. Yum.

If you don’t come, I get them all. And I won’t invite you to come and share it with me…so you better join me Thursday or here is where I’ll be going without you…
