School Lunch Reform Gathers Momentum

It’s increasingly looking like school cafeterias won’t be nutritional wastelands for much longer. Here’s a great quote from activist lunch-lady Ann Cooper:

Obama actually said the words ‘school lunch’ and ‘health’ in the same paragraph. The last time a President talked about school lunch, it was Reagan talking about making ketchup a vegetable.

Fundamental school lunch reform was one of the main priorities I called for in Meat Market, when I assessed activist projects to dismantle animal agribusiness. Thanks to the efforts of people like Cooper and groups like PCRM, that work is moving ahead quickly. Link.
