healthy food in schools

Summer may be in full swing, but the school year is just around the corner. School lunches are always a popular topic. I'm sure readers of Mom Go Green would support requiring higher nutrition standards in school lunches.

On June 24 a broad coalition of mothers traveled to Washington, D.C. to urge Congress to support healthy food choices in our nation's schools. These moms delivered over 50,000 petition signatures to Congress - signatures from the Food, Inc. movie website and the Mom's Rising website.

While the day was big success, it would be great for even more people to sign the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act so they can deliver this to Congress for its vote end of July.

It's easy to just click and sign.
