My Houston Chronicle Op-Ed re: Saving School Lunch

For those interested, I have an editorial in today’s (Sunday) Houston Chronicle regarding the current school food controversy.

In it, I discuss how Texas (yes, Texas!) has been a leader in school nutrition, and how our congressional delegation should carry on that  proud tradition by rejecting language in the pending appropriations bill that would allow districts to opt out of improved school nutrition standards.

You can read the full text of the editorial here, and thanks to the Chron for giving me the opportunity to share my views with its readership.
