I'm a writer for the nonprofit Healthy Schools Campaign, and we're looking for people to enter a school lunch-related contest. I'm wondering if you'd be interested in participating, because (I'm guessing) you really appreciate the value of a beautiful, fresh healthy lunch. We'd love for you to enter one of your beautiful bento photos. Or write something, or enter a video. Share your triumphs: Have you made a healthy kid-pleasing bento lately? Share your horror stories: Was your childhood scarred by too much “spaghetti with meat sauce”? What was your child's school lunch like before you discovered bento boxes?
We’re spotlighting school lunches because The Child Nutrition Act is up for reauthorization in 2009, and we’re spreading the word about the importance of a healthy school lunch for all students. I know it might seem sketchy for me to post this to the forum without posting my own photos, but I thought this was a good fit.
