Action petitioned for
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens that have joined a community-driven request to Town Council to implement no less than 55% real, whole food options at the Town’s snack bars and vending machines. We urge the leaders of our community to act now to bring real food options and overhaul the proposed report entitled: Request For Proposals - Vending and Concession Operations. We would like to see REAL FOOD offered at our community centres in order to give choices to those who frequent these facilities. Currently, there is only junk food offered and this needs to change. Please give us choice!!!
Our request includes:
- At least 55% of the food in the concessions and vending machines to be real food (Suggestions: fruit, salads, cheese, yogurt, apple sauce, healthy granola bars, hummus and crackers, trail mix, sandwiches, hard boiled eggs, healthy packaged items)
Remove at least half (not all) of the junk food that is currently offered (eliminate product duplication, supersize items and the very sugary foods (i.e. Jolly Rancher drink machine) to make room for healthier choices and promote real food for the athletes and residents who need proper fuel for the activities they undertake.
Eliminate marketing of junk food to children to help parents avoid constant arguments around buying junk food and place real food options upfront and in view of customers.
