A milestone in HEAL-SLO’s policy group, the County Board of Supervisors decided to pass a policy that allocates a portion of food purchasing to local vendors. Buying local not only directly supports our local growers, but it also supports our planet by reducing emissions that would have been caused by transporting food across the nation. San Luis Obispo’s The Tribune captures the story here.
KCOY chose HEAL-SLO to be apart of their “One Million Dollar Community Investment Events” where they do free stories about community programs or events. Click here to read more about the story.
VEG, a young blogger from the UK, has begun posting what she has every day from her school lunches and has asked outher children from around the world to send her their photos to compare.
The meals are judged on 6 categories:
Food-ometer – out of 10, how great the lunch was
Mouthfuls – to judge portion size
Courses – what was included in the meal
Health Rating – out of 10, how healthy the meal was
Price – what the lunch cost to buy
Pieces of hair – adding a litle humor to the posts.
It is very interesting to see how everyone compares.
