Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
More Chicken Products for School Children?!

This is a fantastic letter written by Susan Levin, M.S., R.D. (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), directed to Secretary Tom Vilsack urging him to cancel the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recently announced plan to purchase $40 million of chicken products for use in school lunches and other federal food assistance programs.

Ms. Levin explains clearly why it's not in the best interest of children to eat chicken given the high fat and cholesterol content, and the increased risk of contamination with salmonella or campylobacter. She also asks Mr. Vilsack to "stop using child nutrition programs as a means for boosting agribusiness incomes."

To read the letter please visit USDA Should Cancel Plan to Cancel $40 million of Chicken Products for School Lunches:

It’s encouraging that more people and institutions have started challenging the status quo. Agribusiness is a rotten industry that unless consumers stop supporting, the health of people, the state of the environment, and the lives of God’s animals will continue to be negatively affected with devastating consequences.
