My disdain for the typical school lunch has never been a secret here on my blog. As much as I love my sleep, I began waking up earlier in the morning to make a nutritious and tasty lunch that the kids would be able to enjoy. But I would have much preferred that the schools just, oh... I don't know... SERVE BETTER FOOD???!!!
Whole Foods has heard the cries of many a concerned (and sleepy) mom.
Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools
The Farm-to-Table movement has taken off at restaurants across the country. Now it's time for a similar movement to catch fire at the school level for our kids.
My favorite food source, Whole Foods Market is putting its money where its mouth is – in the greens!
Buy Your Greens!
On Sunday, Sept. 9, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 for every pound of food purchased at its salad and hot food bars in its Southern Pacific region stores (Southern California, Hawaii, Arizona & Las Vegas) to help put salad bars in local schools through the Whole Kids Foundation. So while you fill up on your own yummy greens, you will be helping to get salad bars to schools!
Funds will benefit the Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools. Let's Move Salad Bars to School is a comprehensive grassroots public health effort to mobilize and engage stakeholders at the local, state and national level to support salad bars in schools. Whole Foods' vision is to significantly increase salad bars in schools across the country until every child has the choice of healthy fruits and vegetables every day at school.
See you at Whole Foods on Sunday!
*Salad Bars in schools is not a left or a right issue. It's about our kids having a leafy green, tasty option for lunch.
