Book Club News!

The publisher of Free for All: Fixing School Food in America contacted me right after I posted about starting up the book club and offered to giveaway five copies to readers of the blog! How cool.

Like I posted last week, we’re going to spend most of January acquiring the book (through the library, bookstore, online, or the giveaway) and starting to read it. Moving into February, I’ll start posting discussion questions, to keep us going. Word of warning: this is not light reading. Janet Poppendieck must have researched and written for years to compile and organize the information for the book. The only time I find to read is at night, before bed. I’m going to put a highlighter on the bedside table so I can keep track of all of her quotes, statistics, and other information.

If you want to enter the giveaway and read along, please comment below by Friday January 7th! I’ll choose winners using random number generator.

  1. would love a copy! started reading free for all a year ago and had to return to the library before i could finish 🙁

  2. Would love a copy! I can't buy it right now. Not enough funds. My library does not have a copy either. 🙁 Maybe I'll get lucky & win a copy. Thanks!

  3. I'd love to win a copy. Sadly, our library doesn't have it and they can't even get it on loan from another local one. Maybe I'll win my own copy 🙂 Can't wait for the book club to start! TheKitchenZombie(AT)aol(DOT)com

  4. I would love some new ideas for school lunch! Our school doesn't have a hot lunch program, and it gets hard trying to come up with ideas!

  5. I'd love to get in on this! I work for a community garden initiative in Southwestern Ohio and am looking for ways to get more fresh produce into local schools. This sounds right up my alley!

  6. I would love to read this! We have already excluded high fructose corn syrup from our kids diet, and they seem to be doing great! I would love to be 'all natural' if possible…

  7. This future teacher (I'll graduate in February) is super interested in school food and how it relates to student classroom performance. I love your blog and I'd love this book!

  8. I doubt my local library will have a copy, so here's hoping my number comes up! :o)

  9. I would love a copy – my library doesn't have it yet. This would save me from having to order it!

  10. I would love to read this. I just spent the past week reading your blog from the beginning (very cool to see your journey from the beginning.) It made me realize that we have it pretty good in our school (our cafeterias cook mostly from scratch and we even have recess every day and PE 3-4 times a week!) But, there is always room for improvement so I would love to read about what I can do to make things even better.

  11. Thanks to everyone who entered!! I'm going to close comments and announce the winners on MONDAY!!
