PCRM Supporter Hope Solo’s Save Wins US Gold

The US women’s soccer team goalie and Olympic champion wrote to Congress in support of the Healthy School Meals Act to improve school lunches.

US Olympic women’s soccer team goalie Hope Solo’s incredible save helped bring home gold during Thursday’s game against Japan, but the Olympic champion is focused on another endeavor to benefit the nation: Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine’s campaign to improve school lunches. Solo wrote to Congress in 2010 asking Congress to pass the Healthy School Meals Act, which would help school food programs serve more plant-based meal options. In a letter to her Congressman, Solo expressed her concern by writing, “The meals children eat at school … are often high in saturated fat and lacking in fruits and vegetables. You can’t make it to the Olympics without making wise food choices.” Olympic gold-medalists Amanda Beard and Nastia Liukin joined Solo in writing to lawmakers in support of the bill.
