Clip to ScrapBook #58

Many of the schools I work at have very high free/reduced percentages, and they ALL have salad bars. And it works. I'm not sure where the funding is coming from (I did some Googling but got nowhere, though I did discover that Whole Foods offers a grant to provide salad bars to schools...some of you might want to look into that).

IDK...those who are worried about funding, taxes, etc., it seems to me like we as a nation (or community) have a choice: Do we want to spend our money on tax cuts for gazillionaires and useless wars, or do we want to spend our money on things like feeding our children good food? Saying we can't afford it is like...well, it's like the parents we all complain about who have designer clothes and $300 cell phones but claim they can't afford a box of pencils for their kid. That is exactly what we're doing on a national level, IMO.
