Dear Nancy Pelosi -

As I mentioned before it is officially Veg Week here in San Diego.  I had intended to hear Dr.Michael Greger's lecture this past Saturday but I was too busy getting engaged.  :)  Instead I will be listening to Neal Barnard, MD (the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) speak at the Compassion Bash in Balboa Park next Saturday.  I will blog more about him next week!

I am thrilled at the work The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is doing to turn around the National School Lunch Program.     This is where you come in! 

There is something called The Child Nutrition Act (HR 5504).  This important legislation will introduce plant-based foods to schools, increase the availability and affordability of these foods, and provide incentives for schools to provide daily plant-based options. The Act will also remove restrictions on providing nondairy milk alternatives with school lunches, improving the nutrition of millions children who currently lose out on vital nutrients because they are lactose intolerant, have allergies, or choose not to drink milk for other reasons.

Herein lies the issue.   The House version of the new Child Nutrition Act may be rejected for a much weaker, stripped-down Senate version.  Congress is on the verge of voting on the House version of the bill.   Sounds terrible, right?  I agree.  A major issue with this entire Act is the $$$.  The plan is to take money out of our foodstamp program to pay for these changes.  This is why I get a headache when I start talking politics.   Our country is facing serious financial hardship, duh, what else is new?  Our nation's children are also becoming increasingly obese and facing Type II Diabetes like never before.  

If you would like the House version passed let key leaders know.  We are running out of time, but it's not too late!
