School Lunch 101: Also, Mercury's Sarah Mirk in a Corn Suit

Because we're always a sucker for people in food costumes... and the health of Portland's children, of course. This evening at Internet cafe/performance spot Backspace, Mercury news editor Sarah Mirk hosts a discussion about the lunches served up by local schools. Panelists include representatives from Portland Public Schools, local processed-food company Truitt Brothers, Inc., and Caitlin Blethen, of the Youth Grow program at Growing Gardens Plus. And have we mentioned there's a corn suit involved?
