Weekend Reading


La Vida Locavore has an an interesting post about the USDA, its love affair with cheese, and nutrition education for kids. These folks also have a very interesting piece about how the soda lobby defeated Washington's soda tax.

The NYT ran this look at the school lunch program this past week.  Innteretingly, it was the Patient Money column - and discussing what would make lunch money money well-spent. Then, join the conversation about it here.

Mark Bittman asks Can Walmart be Local and Sustainable?

If you are planning for Thanksgiving already, the NYT has a bunch of stuff for you. Go seasonal with fall vegetable recipes. Go sustainable with meatless recipes.  And make ure you have something for everyone with these gluten-free recipes.

There is an entire blog on wasted food. Maybe more than one.  Our school lunch program needs to address this.


WNYC's Brian Lehrer interviewed Jonathan Bloom author of the above mentioned wasted food blog and a new book. Listen here.


Old Westbury Gardens has a children's program at noon on Saturday where kids can help put the gardens to bed for the winter. Help plant bulbs at the gardens and bring one home for planting, too.

On Sunday, Bailey Arboretum will be teaching kids how animals survive the winter and help them make a treat to feed to their birds at home.
