See Pics from Slow Food's Eat In

On Monday in Atlanta, Georgia, several hundred people gathered in Piedmont Park with Josh Viertel, president of Slow Food USA, to celebrate their Time for Lunch campaign. It was National Day of Action and this Eat-In (part potluck, part Sit-In) was just one of more than 300 across the country as tens of thousands of people came together on Labor Day to tell Congress that it's time to get real food into schools. Preliminary results from the field showed that turnout was greater than expected, which demonstrates that people are concerned about our children's health. Slow Food wants to send a clear message to Congress that the time to update the Child Nutrition Act is now. We have a chance to invest in our children's health, protect them from food that puts them at risk and teach healthy habits that will last through life. If you haven't done so yet, you can sign the petition at www.slowfoodusa.org/timeforlunch.

Mr. Mackey's op-ed in the Wall Street Journal has convinced me that I should shop elsewhere.
