Sarah Silverman took some time to write to congress recently. A vegetarian since the age of 10, Sarah is pushing to have the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010 passed; it’s an act that would help schools provide more fruits, veggies, and plant-based meals to students.
She writes, in part:
I’m positive we can make a difference. If we help children develop healthy habits early on, they’ll have a lower risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes in the future. And that would mean lower health care costs. See? Only good comes from this.
