Upstate Advocates Applaud State Assembly for Passing Healthy Schools Act

June 1, 2007

Yesterday, upstate advocates applauded the passing of the Healthy Schools Act (A8698), a bill that if it were to become law would increase the quality of free school meals statewide, including New York City.

“We especially applaud the effort to expand the school breakfast program, increase state funding for school meals, and eliminate junk food from our schools,” said Mark Dunlea, Associate Director of the Hunger Action Network of New York State.

The bill now faces passage in the State Senate. If you want to let your State Senator know how you feel about this bill, you can find his or her contact information using NYPIRG’s Who Represents Me? database.
