Amy Kalafa made lunch. Then she got angry.
Kalafa's campaign begun when she and her husband tried to pack healthy lunches for her kids only to see their work undermined by the school's junk food has generated a documentary film ("Two Angry Moms"), a website (http://angrymoms.org) and a new book, Lunch Wars: How to Start a School Lunch Revolution and Win the Battle for Our Children's Health.
The book offers tools, curriculum ideas, policy recommendations, surveys and examples of success stories in getting unhealthy food out of school cafeterias.
Kalafa will talk about her campaign, and sign copies of her book, tonight at 7 p.m. at The King's English Bookstore, 1511 S. 1500 East, Salt Lake City.
The signing is free, and the Sugar House Whole Foods Market will provide refreshments.
