Sign the petition: Help counter Big Food's lobby machine
In a huge victory in the fight for a sustainable food system, the USDA and HHS may finally consider the health of the planet in their dietary guidelines (a.k.a. the “Food Pyramid”)!
What does this mean? It means that the U.S. government may recommend food that is good for both our health and the environment. The impact would be felt in schools and other government facilities across the country -- and across our entire food system.
But Big Food has millions of dollars in profits at stake, and it isn’t going to let this happen without a fight. We have the science and the economics on our side -- but we have to make sure our message isn’t drowned out by all the industry spin.
Tell the Obama Administration: Protect our health and our planet, not Big Food's profits!
