We’ve all been following the “Food Revolution: With Jamie Oliver” and becoming more aware of what is happening to our children in school with the food provided, we wanted to invite you to join the “Citizen Lobbyist” revolution. (Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Food Revolution – go watch the movie Food Inc. I watched it yesterday and it will open your eyes to why we need to wake up and take action!)
Congress is writing a new law that would help schools provide healthier food for their students. We need your help! Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 21, you can become a citizen lobbyist and call to ask your representative in Washington to support H.R. 4870, the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010.
Will you retweet or repost this message, get the word out to your friends and family and join MMTVN and local student activists for a conference call to learn how to get involved and lobby your Member of Congress. Find out more about this movement by clicking here.
Hear more about the Healthy School Meals Act, why it is so important for the health of America’s children, and how you can ask your Member of Congress to support it by contacting him or her directly on Wednesday, April 21.
We have a voice – let’s use it! The more people who call Congress on April 21, the greater the impact we can have. We need to act now to ensure that Congress enacts provisions in the Child Nutrition Act reauthorization to help schools provide healthy vegetarian options in America’s cafeterias.
Sign up to be a citizen lobbyist and ask your friends and family to join in too! Together we can make a difference for children’s health.
