on Local Lunch
Food is complicated --it has nutritional, cultural, economic, and environmental components. Of great importance is to offer students foods they will eat. Oregonians are blessed/fortunate to have abundant local food that is healthy & tasty. As much as possible local food, sustainably produced, and least processed is what should be offered to the students. Kitchen staffs with good cooking skills is important as is attention to keeping waste to minimum on everyone's part, and spending money wisely. Schools with school gardens provide an excellent learning experience for students to connect to the source of food, obtaining important appreciation that will serve throughout live. Thanks Emily and Think Out Loud for focusing on this important issue.l Emma Steen
