What I learned about myself:

  • Thanks for your comments and emails. They mean the world to me.
  • I still am proud of myself for doing this blog project and balancing the rest of my real life responsibilities. I don’t know how I find the time.
  • I ate through half a year of school lunches! And my health didn’t suffer too badly in the short run..
I’m always open to
  • guest bloggers who care about school lunch issues
  • international perspectives on lunches at school
  • your thoughts and feedback


Coming in July: Random school lunch and children’s food-related photos, more “soup up my lunch,” AND I’m taking a vacation…
