EVERY CHILD DESERVES A HEALTHY FUTURE

Healthier school lunch menus can help make that happen

MY CHILD AND EVERY CHILD

I’ve dedicated my life to making high-quality nutrition more accessible to families and communities around the world. Through my work, I’ve seen firsthand how closely food and health are related, but nothing has brought the importance of nutrition into sharper focus than becoming a mother. Becoming a mother made the fight for a healthier food system personal.

​​More than ever, I want for every child in Massachusetts what I want for my own child: a long, healthy life. Making that happen starts with high-quality nutrition.

That's why I founded the Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Coalition. Together, with other parents, school leaders, public health experts, and community members, we're on a mission to make sure every child is nourished now and set up for the healthy future they deserve.

ABOUT THE COALITION

The Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Coalition (MHSLC) was founded in 2020 with a hunger to secure the healthy, equitable, and liveable future all children deserve. We believe that school nutrition and food purchasing are powerful opportunities for achieving that vision.

 

MHSLC brings together students, parents, educators, nutrition and sustainability experts, and policymakers to advance our shared vision of healthy school food for all. We'd love for you to join us!

WHY SCHOOL LUNCH?

Our coalition understands that issues of health, equity, and sustainability cannot be separated or ignored. Ensuring a healthy, livable future for our children and families therefore requires immediate and collaborative efforts between government, private and public sectors, and individuals.

​While there are no simple solutions, now is the time to take action, lead boldly, and show the children of Massachusetts that their future is a top priority.

NOURISHED. HEALTHY. SUCCESFUL.

The Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Coalition (MHSLC) is bringing together students, parents, teachers, school leaders, nutrition and sustainability experts, and policymakers to work for the healthy future every child deserves. Our coalition understands that issues of health, equity, and sustainability cannot be separated or ignored.

Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Bill

The companies that serve food to our children can do better. The Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Bill (S.363 and H.564), will make healthier menus the default for the 500,000 Massachusetts students who depend on school lunch each day.
