which is kind of fun.

I just wish I knew
how to make it bigger.

An interesting development

Now here's a helpful example of alternative facts; that is, actual facts that challenge food industry manipulated nutritional information. Facts as an alternative to misinformation. How about that!

A story in FERN this week reports that the founder of KIND, Daniel Lubetzky, who's funding this is creating a kind of blind trust, leaving the direction of the site to a board of notable nutrition scientists.

Think of it as the Antisugar. Or the food biz's Antitrump.

A School Lunch Hero

and a good summary of the history and issues of school lunch policies.

I've been on Facebook a little too much, but this story is too long and too complex to share there. It's information is a good preparation for countering whatever selfish bunkum the current Republican administration throws at us.

This article reminded me that on the things we care deeply about - such as all our school children having access to wholesome food - we need to be prepared with facts and good examples of what works. It also underscores the importance of working locally with day-to-day doggedness to achieve our goals, not focusing on celebrity initiatives.
