School Lunch Support

Sarah Silverman advocates for healthy school lunches and supports upcoming legislation.

This week, comedian Sarah Silverman announced her support of the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010 by writing a letter to Congressman George Miller, D-Calif. If passed, the bill will provide public schools with resources to serve healthier meals. Silverman says that she is offended by the unhealthy foods that children are fed in public schools, calling it a contributing factor to the growing childhood obesity epidemic. Healthy school lunch activists at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are praising the comedian for her decisive support. Silverman is a longtime vegetarian with a history of encouraging meat-free diets.
