While she might be famous for being funny, Sarah Silverman is never afraid to speak up for a serious cause.

Most recently, Silverman penned a letter to Congressman George Miller in support of Healthy School Meals Act of 2010. If passed, the legislation would offer incentives for schools that serve healthier meals, including plenty of plant-based options.

In the letter, Sarah writes:

“I’m writing to you about something that has shocked and offended me, and trust me when I say it takes a lot to shock and offend me. Some of the foods we’re feeding kids in schools are repulsive—and that unhealthy food is feeding the childhood obesity epidemic.

“All kids – vegetarian or not – should have healthy options. I think that we forget the simple fact that what we put in our bodies directly affects our bodies. Many kids aren’t able to bring lunches from home – they have to eat what’s in the lunch line. Without healthful options in the cafeteria, we’re doing our children and the future of our country a great disservice.”

We’re overjoyed to see Sarah join the Healthy School Meals Act’s long list of celebrity supporters, including Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Obama, Woody Harrelson, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Fingers crossed it passes!

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
