Ahmed Amjad Muslim started this petition to Senator Elizabeth Warren and

We’re writing this petition to our respected Massachusetts government leaders to look into the Public School meal menu and attempt to resolve a meal issue for many Muslim students across Massachusetts (and hopefully other states will follow). Our Muslim kids who rely on school lunches are forced to choose between two options: stay hungry until they return home or violate their religion’s food restrictions.

It is critical to serve our students’ nutritional needs while they invest their time in school. Imagine a child who’s 7 years old who’s waiting for the school bell to ring, so he or she may return home and eat a Halal meal. Would she / he concentrate as equally as someone who just had lunch? I wouldn’t imagine a child in that age would be interested in learning: 5*5 = 25. In fact, his / her priority at the time is to eat a Halal meal. If this is the case, then how many students in the U.S. are affected by this?

To that extent and more, we’re very confident that our Massachusetts respected leaders will take this petition into consideration and implement a plan to include Halal meals in Public Schools, so no Child is Left Behind.
