Providence Schools Nutrition Advisory Group via Kids First - meeting tomorrow, 11am, 7 Stars on Hope Street

Serendipitously, July's East Side Monthly issue with "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Breakfast" caught the eye of Jennifer Quigley-Harris, Communications Director at Kids First / Real Food First and a parent of two kids in the Providence Public Schools.

Jennifer asked me to share the following opportunity:
I'd like to pass along an open invite to any parents, guardians, grandparents or interested community members in Providence that would like to be a part of a newly forming Providence Schools Nutrition Advisory Group for next school year to join us at a very informal first meeting on Thursday June 23rd at 11 am at Seven Stars Bakery on Hope Street.

Representatives from Kids First will be in attendance and hopefully some kind of plan for action will begin to come together to address the need for further positive improvements in the school food system and offerings district-wide.

Please bring your enthusiasm and positive attitude!  All welcome.
Yes, this gathering is happening tomorrow. Jennifer mentioned that if you can't make it and would like to be part of the conversation as it continues, you should be in touch with her at, and please spread the word to others who might be interested.

I'll be there tomorrow though will be arriving late. (Why late, you ask? I'll be coming from the Mosaic Dedication at MLK Elementary - the fabulous "We Love to Read" mosaic featured on the home page of this blog was the product of King's annual mosaic in 2010. This year: volcano! It's awesome. I'll post photos tomorrow.)
