New legislation for school food that passed last fall means we have a huge opportunity to get better, healthier meals at school. But some powerful interests think that the current meals are good enough and don't want the system to change. There is a risk that the healthy school food standards which the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has drafted will get watered down unless they hear from the public.
The proposed standards are not perfect but they are an important first step to putting more fresh, whole food on school menus across the country.
Will you join Jamie in speaking up for better lunch and send a comment to the USDA?
