Los Angeles

Valentine’s Day at the LAUSD

Emily Ventura shares an update on Slow Food Los Angeles’s social action efforts on the school lunch issue:

Last Monday’s rally to support a reduction in sugar in the LAUSD food was a success! Thanks to the Slow Food LA members who participated. Mary MacVean of the Los Angeles Times covered the event, and her article is available online.

This is just the start of the advocacy needed to reduce the overall sugar served at schools and to improve the quality of school food in general. More information about specific ways to get involved will be shared soon. In the meantime, if you have ideas or would like to get involved, please contact Emily Ventura at gallonofsugar [at] gmail [dot] com.

In addition, the online petition to support removing flavored milk from the LAUSD is available at: http://www.petitiononline.com/86sugar/petition.html.
