Link To An Excellent Cause

I came across a tweet this afternoon from another blogger I follow who had linked to the following blog:

Fed Up: School Lunch Project

It's a blog that just started at the beginning of January 2010 and chronicles the efforts of a public school teacher to demonstrate just how lacking our school lunch programs can be. In the same vein as Morgan Spurlock in Super Size Me, "Mrs. Q" has decided to put her money where her mouth is and committed to eating the exact same school lunch that her students are offered for an entire year. While still in its infancy, I think and hope that this blog will help to expose the issue of nutrition (or lack thereof) in many of our school food programs.

Normally when I find a link that I like, I simply add it to the "Things I Like To Read" section on the right hand side of my blog. However, after reading what Mrs. Q has had to say so far in just this month alone, I felt like I would like to do just a bit more and decided to post an entry urging my readers to check out her blog. Plus, as an aside, you'll get a walk down memory lane when you read about the many classics that apparently have not faded with time. Salisbury steak anyone? Isn't it great to know that the "pizza" being served to our youth today is just as terrible as it was when you were back in the 8th grade?

Thanks for introducing this blog to me - I'll be reading it today. I've read about the first two meals so far and I'm amazed that the meals she's eating aren't even scooped out of a pan anymore, they're already pre-packaged and look microwaved.

Hope all worked out well with that site that grabbed your post about B Spot.

@Liz: I was a little surprised myself how pre-packaged all the food on her blog looks. It makes me remember fondly the days of the lunch line where they actually cooked the food and didn't simply reheat it.

Everything worked out just fine with the other site. The blogger added a link back to EFMW and all is well.
