Slow Food potlucks in Flatbush this weekend!

broccoliTwo Slow Food-themed potlucks will be held right here in the neighborhood this weekend: on Sunday September 6th at the Campus Road Garden, and Monday September 7th at P.S. 217.

The Time for Lunch Campaign is a project of Slow Food USA, an educational non-profit with the goal of creating a world in which everyone can enjoy food that is good, clean and fair. The purpose of Time for Lunch is to bring focus to the upcoming Congressional review of Child Nutrition Act, which governs the national school lunch program. You can read all about this on their website.

As part of the campaign, people are holding EAT-INs at schools across the nation on or about Labor Day, Sept 7. This is basically a community potluck of fresh, fantastic, REAL food.
