Are You an American Parent Fed Up with School Food? Read This!

Wow, two days of positive stories in a row!

Today's positive post comes from the Rudd Center. For those of you who don't know, the Rudd Center is a world leader in the fight against weight bias and the toxic food environment. Think of them as the Pentagon and just like the Pentagon, to carry out missions they need foot soldiers.

And that's where you come in.

While you might be fed up with school food, being fed up isn't enough. You need to be trained in combat and the Rudd Center has put together an online bootcamp entitled, "Rudd 'Roots Parents" where they'll drill you through the whys and wherefores of school food policies along with tangible tools and worksheets to help you with your grassroots school food advocacy efforts.

While it's truly a sad state of affairs that such a site is necessary, huge kudos to the Rudd Center for putting it together.
