Slow Food USA's Time for Lunch Campaign: EatingWell Broccoli & Bacon Salad

Today we has a family gathering at our house to celebrate labor day and to recognize the 'Time for Lunch' campaign. The Time for Lunch Campaign is a project of Slow Food USA, an educational non-profit with the goal of creating a world in which everyone can enjoy food that is good, clean and fair.

"Together, we are publicly rejecting the notion that our schools can’t afford to feed kids anything but the bad food that makes them sick. And the way we’re making this statement is by bringing neighbors together in the spirit of good will and for the joy of sharing good food. That is the heart of our movement."

Attend an Eat-In on Labor Day. There are 296 taking place in cities and towns across America. On the website, you can search for Eat-Ins by state and find one near you.

If there isn’t one in your area, sign up to host your own: all you need to do is gather with friends for a Labor Day potluck, take a photo (the more creative, the better) and send it to us to show your support. If enough people sign up today, we’ll pass the 300 mark and our message will be even stronger.
Even if you can not host or attend a potluck, you can sign the petition! The petition states "I believe that change can’t wait: It's time to provide America's children with REAL FOOD at school."
The recipe that we choose for the potluck was from Broccoli & Bacon Salad from EatingWell. The only deviation we made was to use 4 slices of turkey bacon.
