Reinforce Anti-Obesity ""Home Work"" at School
The Illinois School Board Journal
Although I don’t remember the exact date, I still remember the
impact the school lunch program had on my life. We lived about
five blocks from Lincoln Elementary School, Pontiac CCSD 429, so
until the hot lunch program started, I walked home every day for lunch.
I use the word “home” loosely, however. I was one of the few who were
in my class who had a working mom. Instead of going to my house or
taking a brownbag lunch to school like the “bus kids,” I walked to the
home of one of my mom’s friends, Marian Patelli. Marian was a homemaker
who had three children of her own, all younger than me.
