Basically, thousands of kids get sick each year because schools serve them food that has been recalled and/or is being manufactured in plants infected with bacteria, etc. On top of that, some American's are turning into little blobs, while others are going hungry.
In hopes of getting safer food in the guts of Americas youth, the senate is gearing up to vote on the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. This bill would commit an additional $4.5 billion to child-nutrition programs over the next 10 years and would be the largest overhaul the US school food system has seen in decades.
Why not have organic, locally grown, vegan food at all schools? Kids would be healthier, the planet would be healthier, and so would their conscience.
