New public service advertisements (PSAs) released today by Feeding America and the Ad Council are designed to raise awareness of where families across the country can find free and nutritious meals for their children during the summer months when school isn’t in session.
Cooking is an emotional thing. Most chefs would agree with that. However, what happens if someone decides to do things differently and change a tried and tested routine? Are convenience and ready-made meals the real deal or is it rather the good old sumptuous steak straight out of the frying pan?
I believe that every child in America has the right to fresh, nutritious school meals, and that every family deserves real, honest, wholesome food. Too many people are being affected by what they eat. It's time for a national revolution. America needs to stand up for better food!
