Volunteers Wanted for DC Schools' Healthy Eating Campaign

We received this call to arms (and to knives, forks and spoons) from SaladBars2Schools.org, which seeks to encourage healthier eating in DC public schools. Sounds like a good idea to us.  

Here are the details:

Attention foodies, activists & advocates! Help DCPS Students Kick Off the School Year with Healthy Eating Habits!

Volunteers are needed to show students how to create balanced meals at new DCPS salad bars. This commitment is one lunch shift (11 am to 2 pm) on the day of your choice from August 29 through September 2, 2011.

Every minute of classroom time is precious, which means lunch periods are shorter than ever. Salad bars = faster, fresher, healthier food. They empower students to make smart choices and increase cafeteria efficiency.

You can choose from any of these participating schools: 

Eastern High School
H.D. Woodson High School
 Ellington School of the Arts
Ballou High School
Columbia Heights Education Campus
Wilson High School
Phelps Architecture, Construction & Engineering High School
Banneker High School
Coolidge High School
McKinley Tech High School.
