National organizational efforts finding success

    New York Coalition for Healthy School Lunches
    They introduced the Healthy School Lunch resolution to New York's legislature, which then passed by a unanimous vote. This is "a grassroots group of concerned parents, students, educators, food service professionals, medical professionals, religious leaders and environmentalists working to bring healthy plant-based nutrition to our schools in response to the health crisis occurring among our children."

Lean and Green Kids
Lean and Green Kids is headed up by Barbara Gates, the woman behind the Healthy School Lunch Act in California. Get involved!

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine: Healthy School Lunch Campaign
"The Healthy School Lunch Campaign, sponsored by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), is dedicated to improving the food served to children in schools by educating government and school officials, food service workers, parents, and others about the food choices best able to promote children’s current and long-term health."

The Center for Ecoliteracy
Note that though their focus is not limited to vegetarian foods, their efforts highly incorporate plant based options. "The Center for Ecoliteracy supports and advances education for sustainable living. Best known for our work in school food reform and integrating sustainability into K–12 curricula, we have engaged with educators from across the United States and six continents. We offer books, educational materials, film guides, and studies. We conduct seminars, offer presentations at conferences and other events, and provide strategic consulting services to schools and districts."
