Friday Double Feature: Local News Embed

After seeing so much food going to waste at their school and learning about a law preventing donation of that food, two Houston boys have set out to change it!

Hopefully the Houston Independent School District does decide to allow students more choice in what lunch items they take. And just seeing the footage of the mass-produced school lunches makes one want to visit The Lunch Box.

Good to know that some Arizona food scraps are going to hogs. I’ll be visiting a similar scheme in Las Vegas later in the summer.

    Hi, Mr Bloom,

    Three weeks ago, I walked into our public library. Your book caught my eye. It is quite an eye catcher. You did a remarkable job in writing this book. You opened up my eyes to the food waste, not only in America, but England and other places as well. You are a superb writer and very resourceful. Your book ought to be a “required reading” in every school and every family in the U.S and, for that matter, in the rest of the world. Thanks for bringing it to the attention of public.
