Despite the weather, the Daley Plaza Eat-In was a great success. We had four full tables of diners enjoying lunches from City Provisions, Hannah's Bretzel, Gourmet Gorilla and Green Bag Lunch. The fruit provided enough of a draw for passer-bys to sign petitions to get good, clean food into our schools. Those names will ultimately be submitted to Congress to show support for real change to the Childhood Nutrition Act.
We had folks in corn costumes of multiple hues, farmers and kids. Mike Nowak led us all in a call out for good food: What do we want? Good food. How do we want it? Slow.
