      Per message from Suzan Porto:

      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.

      There are two New Jersey Congressmen that PCRM hopes will support our campaign to have plant-based options in the National School Lunch Program.

      New Jersey residents represented in the U.S. Congress by Payne and Holt (who are on the Education and Labor Committee which oversees The Child Nutrition Act) can play a crucial role by voicing their concern directly to them. Contact info below:

      You could either tell your members to contact Suzan Porto who will furnish them the contact information and a template for a support letter (she would like to know how many and whom are responding) or you could give the complete contact information, depending on the amount of space you are reserving for PCRM's campaign.
