PCRM School Lunch Contest

Health organization announces photo contest to reveal the best and worst public school lunch options.

This week, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has launched its School Lunch Revolution photo contest to show the worst options and the best vegetarian offerings served in public schools. The contest runs through March 2 and encourages students, educators, and parents to submit photos that highlight both the bad and good sides of school lunches and explain what makes the meals so terrible or great. A disclaimer asks that all submissions exclude school names and locations. Whether healthful or atrocious, PCRM will post the winning photo on its Healthy School Lunch website, and the winner will receive a Plant Power lunch bag.
