Hey, California!<br><br>
Letters Needed to Provide Vegetarian Options in Schools<br><br>
Barbara Gates in front of the California Capital<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Barbara Gates, of <a href="" target="_blank">Project Healthy Beginnings</a>, recently persuaded California Assemblyman Joe Nation to introduce a resolution to include vegetarian options in public school lunches. A summary of the resolution is:<br><br><br><br>
Urging the State Departments of Health Services, Food & Agriculture, Education and the California School Food Services Association to develop nutritionally sound menu plans that will include at least one daily plant-based vegetarian entree as part of the free and reduced price school lunch program; and to include information on vegetarian/vegan diets in nutrition instruction.<br><br><br><br>
Letters from California residents are now needed for the other California State Legislators and Assembly Members. The resolution does not yet have a number, so please refer to it as The vegetarian school lunch option authored by Assemblyman Joe Nation.<br><br><br><br><a href="" target="_blank">Click here</a> to type in your zip code and find your Senator and Assembly Members name (each CA resident has one of each).<br><br><br><br>
You can copy and paste this letter, changing it a bit to make it your own. All letters can be sent to the address listed in the letter below:<br><br><br><br>

More and more of Californias children come from vegetarian families. It is important that these children have the option of eating healthy meals at school. Assemblyman Joe Nation recently authored a resolution to provide a vegetarian entrée as part of the free and reduced price school lunch program.<br><br><br><br>
Please contact Mr. Nation to express support for this resolution.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you.<br><br><br><br>
