It is a bittersweet submit, TLT’ers.
As lots of you understand, I used to be a pal and mentee of the late Dana Woldow, a passionate San Francisco faculty meals advocate. For twenty years, Dana labored tirelessly to enhance the standard of college meals in her personal district and nationally, and to make sure that all kids may have entry to these meals with out disgrace or stigma.
A while round 2010 or 2011, Dana additionally created an internet site, PEACHSF (Dad and mom, Educators & Advocates Connection for Wholesome Faculty Meals), to generously share with different aspiring guardian advocates every little thing she’d realized alongside the way in which. The positioning featured Dana’s concise and infrequently humorous essays about faculty meals reform, in addition to essays written by different consultants—a reporter, a college vitamin director, and a former principal—who Dana enlisted in her trigger.
After Dana’s too-early passing in 2017, her household ultimately 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 checklist of useful assets, I noticed 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’ll be able to all the time discover them utilizing that hyperlink—or, sooner or later, by clicking on the “Assets” 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 complete Assets part was sorely in want of an overhaul. So if you happen to’re , please do try the opposite sections discovered below the Assets 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!
