As a result of my recent efforts to end the use of LFTB in USDA-procured beef for the National School Lunch Program, I’ve been chosen as one of eight finalists for Healthy Child Healthy World’s 2012 Mom on a Mission campaign.
I’m truly honored by this nomination, but when you see the other seven finalists and their accomplishments, you’ll understand why I don’t feel I deserve to be in their company. The strides we made this spring toward improved food transparency and consumer choice were only possible because we all voiced our opinion together. It was truly a collective victory and I share this nomination with everyone who signed my Change.org petition.
Here’s a video statement I was asked to submit for the campaign:
Voting begins tomorrow, Saturday, September 1st and will end on Monday, October 15th. When the link goes live tomorrow, you can vote here. (I’ll also share the link on Facebook and Twitter now and then during the voting period.) The winner will be honored at a special fundraising event in New York City this fall.
Thank you to Healthy Child, Healthy World!
