School food and “wow, that tasted great” don’t exactly go together. Remember the Salisbury “steak” and mash potatoes ala ice cream scoop? Yeah, fail.

Even pizza Fridays were horrendous, with those defrosted squares of mutant pizza. I’m Italian, so they still haunt my dreams.

But Pizza Fusion, an organic and “earth friendly” pizza franchise with 15 locations nation wide, has just launched School Organic Pizza Fridays.

Pizza Fusion got the idea after recent reports linking pesticides – widely used in non-organic food – to developmental problems in children, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Basically they want to provide kids with healthier food. Oh come on! You mean churros and dried out hamburgers under heat lamps aren’t good for you – no!

Organic and healthy tend to go hand-in-hand. Odds are if you are eating organic foods, you’re not eating poorly. Last time I checked McDonald’s hasn’t rolled out the McTreeHugger yet.

Pizza Fusions says they offer a 75% organic menu – which includes salads, sandwiches, desserts, and wine and beer – but they’re most famous for their pizza.

So if you want your school to jump on the Pizza Fusion organic bandwagon, just email [email protected]
