"It costs so much to treat people later for diseases that stem from school years. The time is overdue to take a long-term vision and ensure healthiness from childhood."
- an RFKM Supporter

"Huge amounts of food from the school "cafeterias" are pitched every day by students. The food initially is appealing but after tasting it, few students eat much of it. From Kindergarten on I urged my three grandchildren (and their parents) to pack lunches. My grandkids agree - their packed lunch is better."
- an MCPS grandparent
