Rep. Dennis Kucinich and wife Elizabeth were in Washington DC today promoting vegetarian school lunch options. The couple was joined by John Salley, vegetarian and retired NBA basketball star, and members of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
Elizabeth Kucinich recently joined PCRM as the Director of Public Affairs. PCRM sponsors The Healthy School Lunch Campaign, a program committed to improving the food that is served to children in schools. The group encourages schools to serve only foods that promote the health of all children. PCRM is trying to work with Capitol Hill to help schools give students more plant-based lunch options.
