This week, the staff at Slow Food USA’s national office in Brooklyn, NY took ten minutes before their lunch break to sit down and write letters to Congress:
For the next few months, letter writing is the focus of Slow Food USA’s campaign to give America’s children the school food they deserve. Across the country, Slow Food leaders are working with teachers and parent groups to get thousands of letters – especially letters written by kids – sent to legislators’ district offices. At the national office, we thought it prudent to practice what we preach, so fifteen of us put pen to paper in the name of helping schools serve food that’s healthy, nourishing and freshly cooked.
