Proud of my team executing this #schoollunch today : spaghetti with meat sauce, fresh romaine with house-made Caesar dressing, roasted zucchini. It may not look fancy for the foodies on my feed, but for these lunch ladies and these students, this is a huge step in the right direction towards more fresh, locally-sourced, made from scratch food. ❤️💫✨🙌🏼
Do you know what kids in America are eating?
Do you know that the USDA National School Lunch program was founded in post-WWII era in order to beef up students for military intentions, ie get our boys ready for war?
And ironically now that same system is in part responsible for the obesity epidemic. Over 30% of our nation is obese - and I argue it is because the majority of humans have no real relationship to food, no connection to Source, via Mother Earth. We care so much about what we surround ourselves with, what we wear, who we hang out with, but what about what we put into our bodies? There are tremendous growth opportunities that exist in this nation surrounding healthy eating habits.
There is so much room for growth.
