Call For Soy Now

The SPECIAL NUTRITION PROGRAM, part of the FOOD AND NUTRITION SERVICE, under the USDA, is now taking comments about adding soy and rice milk alternatives to the public schools' food programs.

Once the SPECIAL NUTRITION PROGRAM hears from us (and unfortunately, from others like the dairy industry too), they will draft a legislative proposal for Congress asking Congress to amend the Child Nutrition Acts to hopefully include milk alternates.

Please call and fax to support adding soy and rice milk to the food programs in our public schools. (If we don't accomplish this now, it might be another 3 or more years before we get another chance...we are currently so close to reaching this goal that it would be a shame to let it slip through our fingers! :-) )
