More from Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People:

If you want to have a person change in a certain respect, act as though that particular trait were already one of their outstanding characteristics. Shakespeare said: "Assume a virtue if you have it not." And it might be well to assume and state openly that the other party has the virtue you want them to develop. Give them a fine reputation to live up to, and they will make prodigious efforts, rather than see you disillusioned.

 

Hey, California!

Letters Needed to Provide Vegetarian Options in Schools

Barbara Gates in front of the California Capital.

Barbara Gates, of Project Healthy Beginnings, recently persuaded California Assemblyman Joe Nation to introduce a resolution to include vegetarian options in public school lunches. A summary of the resolution is:

Urging the State Departments of Health Services, Food & Agriculture, Education and the California School Food Services Association to develop nutritionally sound menu plans that will include at least one daily plant-based vegetarian entree as part of the free and reduced price school lunch program; and to include information on vegetarian/vegan diets in nutrition instruction.

Letters from California residents are now needed for the other California State Legislators and Assembly Members. The resolution does not yet have a number, so please refer to it as “The vegetarian school lunch option authored by Assemblyman Joe Nation.”

Click here to type in your zip code and find your Senator and Assembly Member’s name (each CA resident has one of each).

You can copy and paste this letter, changing it a bit to make it your own. All letters can be sent to the address listed in the letter below:

Dear Senator XX:

[or Dear Assemblyman (or Assemblywoman) XX:]

More and more of California’s children come from vegetarian families. It is important that these children have the option of eating healthy meals at school. Assemblyman Joe Nation recently authored a resolution to provide a vegetarian entrée as part of the free and reduced price school lunch program.

Please contact Mr. Nation to express support for this resolution.

Thank you.

Sincerely,


Your Name
