Last September, on Labor Day 2009, I participated in Time for Lunch, a nationwide initiative of Slow Food USA designed to promote healthier foods in our schools. Our Eat In took place at Midway State Park located in the Bemus Point area on Chautauqua Lake. Sandwiched between the classic cars “Cruise In,” the amusement park rides and family picnics, our tent offered to the public samples of healthy food made from scratch. These samples included blueberry cobbler, carrot cake, cauliflower broccoli salad, Italian green beans and tomatoes, and Italian sausage from Someday Maybe farm in Forestville, made from their local farm-raised pork without antibiotics and hormones.
