I have teamed up with Canadian blogger Karen from Notes from the Cookie Jar to host a Back-to-School party! It started as a Twitter party exclusively and now it’s an official Blog party too. We will have too much fun chatting, sharing ideas for change, and … there will be giveaways for participants.
Back-to-school Lunch Revolution Blog Party
To participate and enter to win prizes:
1) Please write up a blog post (if you have no blog, upload a youtube video or a flickr photo) about anything related to school lunch including suggestions for school lunch reform, brown-bag lunch recipes, tips for packing lunches for kids, notes you write and put in your kids’ lunches, kids’ favorite foods and drinks, how to make a traditional food more healthy, etc.
2) Link your post with the Mr. Linky widget under to Thursday August 26th’s post about the blog party.
3) Visit other blogger’s school lunch posts on the Mr. Linky list over the course of the weekend (it can be on Fed Up With Lunch’s
blog post or on Notes from the Cookie Jar
blog post). Post a comment on Thursday’s Fed Up With Lunch post with THREE things you learned (tips/links/recipes/posts) from the links posted on the blog.
4) The Mr. Linky widget will from open on Thursday morning August 26 until midnight on Sunday August 29th. Check back on Monday August 30th to see who won! Prizes to be given away to folks who post a link AND make a comment.
Current prizes are brand-new lunch-related books (still finalizing my list so there may be more) with a personalized note from me:

I will be tweeting
(@fedupwithlunch) about school lunch, taking your questions, and posting a few for you to answer for an hour on Friday August 27th, 8pm CST/ 9pm EST.

Oh, Jamie Oliver
