Cluck & school lunches

September 26, 2010

Two local updates…

One is that there is a screening of Lunch Line tomorrow evening at the Guild Theater in Oak Park.

From the Slow Food Website:

“Dig In! Sacramento” Please join us as we wrap up an amazing weekend of nationwide community service actions with a night at the movies and pre-film reception. This Sunday, September 26, Movies on a Big Screen with Slow Food Sacramento will be screening the documentary film Lunch Line at The Guild Theater – 7:00pm. map
$6 tickets at the door.

Portrayed is the personal story of six high school students from Chicago who enter a cooking contest to create a healthier school lunch and end up serving their winning meal to Congressional leaders.
62 min.

Following the film is a panel discussion on local advocacy and outreach.
Featured panel speakers:

Julie Raymond, Sac City Unified School District, Healthy Foods Task Force
Bill Maynard, Sacramento Area Community Garden Coalition
Fatima Malik, Health Education Council, G.E.O. Nutrition and Cooking Instructor
Paul Towers, The California Food Project

Lunch Line moviegoers are warmly invited to a pre-film lite appetizer reception:

Second, CLUCK (Campaign for the Legalization of Urban Chicken Keeping), has a hearing coming up on October 5th.  Ignore stuff that says it was on the 21st.  The date was changed.  Before the hearing we encourage you to contact your city council member (info here) to pledge your support.  Also, there are new tee-shirts for those of you who would like one.  I’ll probably be at the event tomorrow selling them ($15 for the public, $12 for CLUCK members).  I begged for women’s shirts, so people please buy them!  There are also new men’s shirts.

Crappy picture of me, but you get the idea. It says "CLUCK" on the back..

The shirts won’t be living with us permanently, but if you want one I can probably tell you where to get one.  Or if you ask me soon enough I can save one for you.

      I can mail you one. Just email me your size (women’s small-large) and color preference (it’s either that green or a bright red).

    Even though I live in unincorporated Sacramento and I have chickens with no legal worries, CLUCK is something I strongly support. Do you have them in any other colors but red and green?

      Nick-The men’s shirts come in bright green (the color I have on) and a gray/sage color. If you want one, let me know and we can either mail you one, you can pick one up at the hearing next Tuesday, or you could come by the next CLUCK meeting.
