Woody Harrelson has joined Scarlett Johansson and Michelle Obama in supporting the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010.

Along with his wife, Laura, Woody is urging Congress to support the Act, which will add plant-based meals and non-dairy beverages to school lunchrooms.

“As parents, we ask you to support HR 4870, the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010,” wrote the couple in a letter to Congress. "We know from watching our own children grow up that eating habits children develop early on stick with them for life. All too often, young people are offered processed meats and cheese and other greasy, high-fat, high-cholestrol foods.

“The Healthy School Meals Act will help children develop better eating habits, provide healthful plant-based options that naturally contain no cholesterol, are low in saturated fat and high in fibre, enabling schools to reach high nutrition standards easily. The legislation gives schools the incentive and ability to address the health problems that are harming our children and overburdening our health systems.

“Please join us in supporting this important legislation and facilitate its passage as part of Congress’ reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act this year.”

Scarlett Johansson and Michelle Obama gave their support to the Act earlier this month.
