Back to School with Healthy Lunches

This Saturday, September 5th, the Wrightstown Farmers’ Market hosts two coordinating events—a chef demo of fresh, healthy school lunch items and a potluck “eat-in” at noon in support of Slow Food USA’s national school lunch initiative—to show parents and responsible adults the advantages to providing healthier school lunches for all kids.

Guest chef Denis Chiappa, co-owner of Carlow Cookery in Doylestown, will demonstrate ways to prepare delicious, healthy, kid-friendly back-to-school lunches using readily available fresh ingredients.

Chiappa’s demos in the morning lead into Slow Food’s Time-Out for Lunch Eat-In at noon, part of the local and national campaign taking place this weekend all around the country to raise awareness of the quality of school lunches and to put “real food” on the menu in school cafeterias.

To show support for healthy school lunches, area residents are invited to bring to the Saturday market a healthy lunch dish to share and a folding chair. For more information about the Time-Out for Lunch initiative or to sign a petition that will go to legislators and school officials, go to the Slow Food USA Web site.
