Dear PCRM supporter,
Please sign our petition to revolutionize school lunches with healthful vegetarian options. American children are amid epidemics of obesity and other chronic diseases related to diet and lifestyle. Schools need to serve more healthful vegetarian foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, the National School Lunch Program makes no provision for plant-based foods.
Now is the time for action. Congress is revising the Child Nutrition Act, which determines what foods are served in school lunches. Sign the petition today to tell Congress that students deserve nutritious foods—more fruits, vegetables, vegetarian foods, and healthful nondairy beverages. Encouraging Congress to make healthful changes to the Child Nutrition Act will help lower the rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Send this e-mail to students, teachers, friends, and family, and ask them to take action. If Congress hears from enough of us, we will win this battle. If you are interested in distributing information on PCRM's Healthy School Lunch Revolution in the Bay Area, please contact Laura Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your support, and feel free to contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Kathryn Strong, M.S., R.D.
