Our grassroots efforts are going gangbusters and support for our effort to ensure all restaurant kids meals meet nutrition standards is growing!
We now have twenty-five organizations from across Vermont and seven Vermont restaurants that have signed on in support. But we’d love your help.
Please let us know if you would like to help us do some work in your community to see where we might build support. Do you know a restaurant who might be interested in signing on? Is there a great local organization committed to prevention or kids’ health? Does your place of business support our effort? How about a local farm or doctor’s office?
Just email me at [email protected]. We can talk with you further and provide you with our fact sheet resolution and restaurant sign-on letter.
You can also go to our website: www.servingkidsbettervt.org to get resources or steer people to it to sign our petition.
