Weekend Reading


Short, interesting piece on The American Prospect blog about what our school lunch says about us - and why it doesn't have to be the way it is.

This troubling but not so surprising piece on the NYT site talks about how nearly half of the food this country produces is wasted and what to do about it. And here's one more idea: composting - at home and at our school.  Ties in nicely with that talk earlier in the week about small fruit.

Great piece on enjoying vegetables here - which in part makes the point that we shouldn't call them "sides" - so, sorry about that post.

Some big corporations are starting to announce plans to phase out the use of BPA. Read more. One more reason the school lunch program is switching to more fresh and fewer canned foods. Well, except the corn.


Did you skip that piece on wasted food in the reading section. You can listen to a podcast here with even more details..


WNYC's Greene Space has a live webcast Sunday as part of the Lopate and Locavores series. Click here for details on "Eat Your Greens."


Do you really need more fun? Aren't you still recovering from Halloween? Well, we do have the Progressive Dinner this weekend.I'll have more fun for you next week.  Feel free to chime in with some fun in the comments.
