School lunch reform - Restoring childrens' health and well-being through edible gardens and healthy school food

On a current installment of my favorite podcast, Eat Feed, Shane Rhodes chats with Zenobia Barlow of the Ecoliteracy Project about educating kids to eat right and grow their own food. The program is Food and Philosophy on the Left Coast. From the web page you can download the program to your computer, iPod or mp3 player.

The Ecoliteracy Project was the first funder of Alice Waters' Edible Schoolyard project. Listen to this interview which describes how the catastrophy of school lunch is reversed successfully in Berkeley. Also mentioned is the involvement of superstar chef Jamie Oliver in England in a similar project focused on reforming British school lunches.

If it can be done in California and Berkeley, it can be done in Hawaii also!

The entire program is good listening. To skip ahead to this segment, move the slider over to the 32 minute point on your iPod, mp3 player, or computer player.
