智慧與愛兼備的性感女星──Scarlett Johansson 
力促國會通過校園健康餐法案
Scarlett Johansson Urges Congress to Pass Healthy School Meals Act

 
華盛頓訊─史嘉蕾・喬韓森(Scarlett Johansson)在《海綿寶寶》的演出,讓孩子們超愛,而爸爸媽媽們,則是對她在《美人心機》裡的演出印象深刻。無論大人、小孩都要為這位既是演員又是歌手,才華出眾的女子鼓掌喝采,她最近力促美國國會通過法案,希望在學校的午餐裡增加更多以蔬果為主的健康飲食。
WASHINGTON—Kids adore her in (海綿寶寶)The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Parents love her in movies like(美人心機)The Other Boleyn Girl and Lost in Translation.

And now, kids and parents alike are applauding actress and singer Scarlett Johansson’s recent request to Congress to add more fruits, vegetables, and healthy meal options to school lunchrooms.

喬韓森寫一封信給國會,力促政府支持2010年編號H.R. 4870的〈健康校園飲食法案〉(the Healthy School Meal Act),該法案由科羅拉多洲眾議員Jared Polis所提出,倡議獎勵額外提供以蔬果為主的素食與無奶餐飲之校區。
Johansson has written a letter to Congress urging support for the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, H.R. 4870, which was introduced on March 18 by Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado. The bill would reward school districts for offering plant-based vegetarian options and healthful nondairy beverages.

喬韓森在信中陳述:「這些年我花很多力氣為了餵養飢餓的孩子而努力,美國有幾百萬的家庭依賴政府所補助的校園午餐。因此,學校的餐點對孩童的成長有關鍵性的影響。」
"I've been involved with efforts to feed hungry children for years," Johansson writes. "Millions of families in America rely on subsidized school lunches, and these meals are absolutely crucial to children's well-being."

這封刊載於《美國新聞與世界報導》(U.S. News & World Report )與《政治》兩本雜誌上請願信,是美國醫師醫藥責任協會(PCRM, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, PCRM)所發起之改革校園飲食運動的措施之一,活動的宗旨在要求國會透過〈聯邦兒童營養法〉的再授權,提供各級學校學生蔬食、低脂飲食,該法案旨在議訂影響全美3千萬孩童營養的學園早、午餐的內含。
The letter—covered by U.S. News & World Report and Politico—is part of PCRM's campaign to ask Congress to provide students low-fat plant-based meals through the reauthorization of the federal Child Nutrition Act, which helps shape the school breakfasts and lunches served to 30 million children.

〈健康校園飲食法案〉將給付額外補助,給同意在每日餐點中提供更多以蔬果為主的素食給學童的校區。這項提案獲得眾議員John Conyers和其他30位聯合倡議人的率先支持,預備研擬一項試驗性計畫,落實在某些預選的學校,提供高纖、低脂的素食蛋白餐點,以及非乳植物奶等飲食。
The Healthy School Meals Act would reward school districts with additional food aid if they offer most students plant-based vegetarian food choices every day. The bill, which has already drawn support from Rep. John Conyers and 30 other co-sponsors, would create a pilot program to provide select schools with high-fiber, low-fat vegetarian protein products and nondairy milk options.

素食校園午餐的概念,也獲得美國醫藥學會、美國公共健康協會的大力支持,一些名人,像全球熱愛的蜘蛛人托比麥奎爾(Tobey Maguire)和棒球明星約翰・沙利(John Salley)也全力擁護,為他們的孩子雀躍不已。
Vegetarian school lunch options are also supported by the American Medical Association, the American Public Health Association, and celebrity parents such as Tobey Maguire and basketball star John Salley.
