It’s time for (healthy) lunch!

As patrons and employees of Local Harvest, we all know how important local, healthy food is. We also know that many people do not have regular access to such food. On September 7, Slow Food USA is holding a national day of action called “Time for Lunch” to get real food in schools and “with the goal of creating a world in which everyone can enjoy food that is good, clean, and fair.”

Slow Food St. Louis will be hosting a local event at the Schlafly Bottleworks on Sept. 7 from 11am-1pm. If you’d like to help volunteer for the event, including helping to promote it before the event, please contact kelly at slowfoodstl.org.

  1. Thanks for the mention! We’ve actually expanded it to 11-2 now.

  2. Thanks for posting. We have a great line up of speakers including Jennifer Strayhorn of HopeBuild, Nancy Smith of Sappington Farmers Market and Debi Gibson with the Seed to Table program in the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District. They will be addressing a number of very innovative initiatives that are connecting kids with food and nutrition here in St. Louis. We also have a lot of fun activities for all ages! Bring your own food, or buy a slow lunch from Schlafly.
