“The Food Lobby Goes to School”

In the event you thought school lunches were about feeding kids nutritious food.

A lot has changed since I was in school. We had no soda or snack machines.

And how about having to rename "Adult Onset Diabetes"?

It boggles my mind that the children of our country, and the places that are supposed to feed them, are merely consumers.

  1. My elementary school had frequent Popa John's Pizza days. They also tried Taco Bell day and McDonald's day. My jr high and high school sold sugary drinks (12 and 20 oz sizes) in the lunch line. Both buildings also had separate pop machines. (Soda is 'pop' for many here in the midwest.)

    Wow. I knew things weren't good in the school lunch scene; I didn't know they were this bad. No wonder the child obesity and diabetes rate is so high.

    "RPA's first campaign, initiated in 2003, is 10,000 Years Is Enough, aimed at ending the teaching of animal agribusiness at universities. As part of the 10,000 Years Is Enough campaign, RPA has sent letters to the heads of the 50 states' main land-grant universities."-

    These children are starving and getting sick on a full stomach. Very scary!
    Meet the meat, egg, dairy, and junk food industries–visit the sick.

    Why would much of society care for nonhuman animals when they don't seem to care about children, and then universities teach the (brains?) of the nation to continue to support the "animal abusing" industry! What a crime!
