I just saw this article about a 9-year-old who’s been photographing and blogging about her school lunches. Apparently because she’s gotten too much press, which coincidently has led to 2000 pounds being raised for hungry children in Africa, she’s not allowed to take any more pictures of her school lunches.
Since when do we DISCOURAGE our children from taking an interest in learning about food, nutrition and charitable endeavors?!? I’m not sure what that school board was thinking, but I imagine they’ll be hearing from a lot of angry foodies, parents, and health conscious people from around the world.
Whatever your stance on school lunches, this is just wrong! Here is an excerpt from VEG’s last entry entitled Goodbye.
This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today.I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to take photos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and I’ll miss seeing the dinners you send me too. I don’t think I will be able to finish raising enough money for a kitchen for Mary’s Meals either.Goodbye, VEG
