- food cost around $0.80 per plate
- same menu item as what was served in the schools in Huntington, WV
- so few ingredients and no additives (I read the recipes) that it was gluten free (if you didn’t take the roll)
Here’s a picture I took…..YUM!
Now the portion above is NOT a school lunch portion. We were told that kids would get one piece of chicken and broccoli or carrots. We were also given the recipes for everything except the rice and all the moms raved about the whole lunch including the rice! It was terrific lunch and it gave a lot of us hope about what could be possible.
Considering recent news about a school banning home lunches, would you object to your child being told this is their only lunch option? Even my son and I could eat this meal with our dietary restrictions (new readers: my son went gluten and dairy free about six months ago and after my year of school lunches ended, I went gluten and dairy free).
Because I’m at the Mom Congress, I’m going to miss out on watching tonight’s season premiere (and live tweeting it like I normally do). I’m super bummed, but I’m hoping it’s rebroadcast later this week.
However, the Food Revolution team will be hosting a Twitter party on Wednesday night (tomorrow) at 7PM PST (Pacific time). Jamie Oliver will be there and everyone will be chatting using the hashtag #foodrevparty. Join us for a fantastic chat and maybe those of you looking for more actionable items get gather information and answers on Twitter. I’m going to be using http://www.tweetgrid.com/ to follow the action.
