Waldorf School of Lexington Speaker Series - Redefining the Family Table
Featuring: Mia Moran, author of Plan Simple Meals: Get More Energy, Raise Healthy Kids, and Enjoy Family Dinner Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 Co-sponsored by: Waldorf PCA and Lexington Community Education Create a stress-free kitchen on school days, workdays and holidays. With long work hours, after-school activities and easy take-out options, the odds are stacked against busy families trying to live healthy lives. We end up with picky kids who have a hard time falling asleep, and overwhelmed parents who end up resenting time at the grocery store and in the kitchen. Author Mia Moran is passionate about food and provides solutions that help the whole family eat clean and together. When this happens, kids thrive at home and at school, and parents connect more deeply with their children, find ease in the kitchen, and many times experience more clarity at work. Mia Moran is a gluten-free mom of three, local author, and speaker who makes time to eat right—and shows time-strapped families how they can too. She is creating a movement of parents who embrace healthy living through small, doable changes.

Storytellers for the evening include Stephen Shick, Marianne Boswell, Beatrix Klebe, Larry Prusak, Ben Soule, Debbie Weiner, and Shana Yansen, Their journeys will take us as far as New Orleans and Honduras and as near as Boston and Lexington, as they share what they learned about the world, themselves, and the struggle for justice. Music will be provided by Mark David Buckles and Matt Myer, a great musical duo who perform original music and rearrangements of popular songs with art and soul. Mark is a conductor, composer, singer, music educator and multi-instrumentalist. He serves as Director of music at Arlington Street Church in Boston, as Music Director of The Sanctuary Boston, and as Lecturer and Affiliated Artist of Music Theory at MIT.
