Healthy Schools Campaign

For many of us whose children attend a public school, whether by choice or out of necessity, healthy food options may be extremely limited, with a typical day’s lunch fare including highly processed meat, frozen french fries, or pizza. Additionally, a majority of U.S. public schools are not equipped with kitchens capable of cooking food from scratch! Fortunately, there are many of us out there demanding change. Healthy Schools Campaign is an organization that works with students to attempt to bring about change in the way the National School Lunch Program is handled in this country.

Congress is considering action that would help bring proper kitchen equipment, plus professional development for food service staff, to more schools. Please urge your senators and representative to support healthy school meals! CLICK HERE to send a letter inviting them to attend the briefing on Capitol Hill on May 24th and May 25th, 2011, to try the student-designed meal in their own cafeteria, and to support action that would help bring proper kitchen equipment and training to more schools.

Thanks for taking the time! Happy, healthy eating!
