Mizuna to reopen Tuesday

From Staff Reports
 

Mizuna Restaurant and Wine Bar, 214 N. Howard St., will be closed until Tuesday while crews repair water damage.

Owner Mike Jones said a broken sprinkler head in the fire suppression system on the second floor flooded the wine bar earlier this summer. He said they worked around the problem for awhile and planned to close this week for the repairs.

The restaurant reopens Tuesday. It is open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 4-10 p.m. Sunday. The summer menus are online at www.mizuna.com, including dishes featuring heirloom produce from Jackson farms.

Slow Food potluck supports ‘real food’ in schools

Slow Food Spokane River will host a free community potluck from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday in the northwest corner of Comstock Park to support the National Day of Action to get “real food” in schools.

Slow Food USA has launched a “Time For Lunch” campaign to lobby the federal government to change the Child Nutrition Act, which governs the National School Lunch Program. The bill is up for reauthorization in Congress this fall.

Among the policy changes suggested by Slow Food advocates are serving local food, raising the reimbursement rate for schools, setting standards against overly processed, high-calorie foods in school cafeterias and focusing on programs that teach kids healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.

There is more information about the campaign at www.slowfoodusa.org/index.php/campaign/time_for_lunch.

Bring a potluck dish to share, blanket, reusable cup, plate and utensils. For more information, contact Slow Food Spokane River at karenb092@gmail.com or call (509) 570-4541.
