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.
