Our August meeting featured Hilary Boynton, author of The Heal Your Gut Cookbook. On her return visit as a featured speaker at our monthly meeting, this time she shared her new venture to start a nationwide movement with her upcoming documentary,
The Lunch Lady.
As a parental advocate in her health journey with her own children, Hilary has taken a new role at Manzanita School in Topanga, CA as the lunch lady partnering with Slow Food Ventura in order to bring organic, well sourced, nutrient dense food to school children so that they might be healthier now and into adulthood than the current generation. She is also passionate about keeping the link to ancestral traditionally prepared food by connecting and sharing stories with elders from all nationalities in order to understand what they grew up with in traditional cultures that made them and continue to make them vibrant, resilient and healthy.
