Roaring Thunder for Healthy School Snacks

by Katheryn T. on Sunday, June 16, 2013

Nearly 250,000 people across the country — including you and 2,500 of your fellow You’re the Cure advocates — spoke-up to support the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s proposal to set strong nutrition standards for foods and drinks sold in school vending machines, a la carte lines, and snack bars

Now let's keep the momentum going!  The movement is uniting once again to ask the USDA to finalize the proposal, so schools can begin to move toward implementation of the nutrition standards.

You can help by taking part in a Thunderclap scheduled for Friday, June 21st that will harness the power of social media to spread the word.

Don’t know what a Thunderclap is? Here’s how it works… 

  1. Visit our Thunderclap page.
  2. Select “Support with Twitter” or “Support with Facebook” to agree to have our unified message- “Thanks #USDA 4 work 2 make school snacks healthier. We're with u as u finalize #SmartSnacks rule! moms.ly/GoUSDA.” - posted to your Twitter and/or Facebook account.
  3. If enough people join the Thunderclap, all of the messages will post at once on June 21st, helping to possibly get smart snacks as a trending topic on Twitter!

Click here to join the Thunderclap now!

Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do to ensure kids have healthier options at school!
