12/9/09 Wednesday: schools and lunches
on December 9, 2009
Good morning Oakland North,
We have a couple of Oakland school stories to start your day off with lunches and discussions of school closure.
First we suggest you begin with our exciting interactive feature that tells the story of an Oakland school lunch. Reporters Laurel Moorehead and Lillian Mongeau stake out the ingredients and kitchens that all take part in preparing our Oakland children’s lunches. Click on the picture below their stories and you can find out how the ingredients of a pan of pasta with meat sauce arrive at our very own public school kitchens.
Schools will be closing in certain neighborhoods in Oakland, but Sankofa isn’t one of them. Mongeau reports on why.
