It’s no secret that school cafeteria food is anything but healthy. Consisting mainly of simple carbs and highly processed meats, American children are in danger of developing serious health problems. The New York Coalition for Healthy School Food is working on to change that.

The organization, which works to improve the health and well-being of New York’s students by advocating for healthy plant-based foods, is hosting a benefit in New York City on Thursday, October 14, and we think you should know about.

Held at the studio of legendary artist Peter Max, the event will honor healthy food advocates, including author T. Colin Campbell, the James Beard Foundation, and filmmaker James Costa, who will offer a preview of his new film Lunch Hour.

Are you excited about healthy food and supporting a great org?! Then stop by HealthySchoolFood.org and get all the details! See you at the par-tay!

    How is this program connected with Mrs. Obama’s project?
    Could this program be replaced with Food Stamps vouchers which can be used at local food vendors for fresher alternatives? Can we keep those kids from eating any meat?
