The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's Healthy School Lunches campaign is dedicated to helping 30 million American students eat healthier school lunches. Join the more than 100,000 students, parents, teachers, and community members who have signed our petition asking Congress to reform the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act in 2010 to help schools provide students with daily vegan meal options, more vegetables, fruits, and healthful nondairy beverages.
