It is a bittersweet publish, TLT’ers.
As a lot of you recognize, I used to be a buddy and mentee of the late Dana Woldow, a passionate San Francisco college meals advocate. For twenty years, Dana labored tirelessly to enhance the standard of faculty meals in her personal district and nationally, and to make sure that all kids might have entry to these meals with out disgrace or stigma.
A while round 2010 or 2011, Dana additionally created an internet site, PEACHSF (Mother and father, Educators & Advocates Connection for Wholesome Faculty Meals), to generously share with different aspiring mum or dad advocates all the pieces she’d realized alongside the best way. The location featured Dana’s concise and infrequently humorous essays about college meals reform, in addition to essays written by different specialists—a reporter, a college diet director, and a former principal—who Dana enlisted in her trigger.
After Dana’s too-early passing in 2017, her household finally discontinued the internet hosting of PEACHSF on the web. However as I used to be writing my appendix for Child Meals, wherein I provide readers my curated record of useful sources, I spotted the appendix simply wouldn’t be full with out Dana’s essays.
So I reached out to Dana’s husband and he kindly gave me permission to add and share these invaluable supplies on The Lunch Tray. And as of this morning, I’m please to announce that Dana’s PEACHSF supplies are as soon as once more again on the web. You possibly can all the time discover them utilizing that hyperlink—or, sooner or later, by clicking on the “Sources” tab above, deciding on the button that claims “Faculty Meals,” after which scrolling down the web page to “PEACHSF/Dana Woldow.”
Whereas I used to be importing Dana’s essays this previous week, I additionally realized that my whole Sources part was sorely in want of an overhaul. So when you’re , please do take a look at the opposite sections discovered underneath the Sources tab: subjects like “Household Dinner,” “Meals Coverage,” and “Lunch Field Packing”—for brand new and up to date hyperlinks.
I hope you discover them useful!
