Ask Congress for Healthier School Meals on April 21!

This Wednesday, April 21st, you can help improve the nation's school lunches by joining in on PCRM's Congress Call-in Day. All you have to do is register and call-in to make a difference! No picket sign required. Details:

"On April 21, please join us for School Lunch Lobbyist Call-In Day and ask your Member of Congress to support H.R. 4870, the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, which makes it easier for schools to offer healthful plant-based options and gives them an incentive to do so. Anyone can be a citizen lobbyist!"

I'm a big fan of PCRM, Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. They work passionately to promote a plant-based diet for our kids and for adults. If you haven't perused the PCRM website, I suggest you do.

Participate in PCRM's School Lunch Lobbyist Day!

Why it Matters:

"More than a third of America’s children are overweight or obese. They are at risk for adult diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Over 30 million kids eat at least one meal at school each day. Most of these meals are high in saturated fat and cholesterol and low in fiber and other key nutrients, and most students cannot choose a healthful, plant-based alternative for their lunch tray. But YOU can help us make change in Washington and in school lunch lines across the country." -PCRM website on Call-in Day
