 As Spider-Man, he defeated the Green Goblin and Sandman. But in his latest role, actor Tobey Maguire is taking on an even bigger threat to public health—unhealthy school lunches. On July 30, Maguire sent letters to congressional leaders asking that the Child Nutrition Act provide more healthy vegetarian options in school lunches.

“I am deeply concerned that unhealthy school lunches are contributing to our nation’s childhood obesity epidemic,” Maguire wrote in the letters to Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. “My wife and I just had our second child, so this issue is tremendously important to us.”

Marilu Henner, mother, best-selling author, and star of Taxi, also joined PCRM’s campaign for healthy school lunches. On Aug. 22, Henner hosted the School Lunch Sound Off in San Francisco. The open-mike event sponsored by PCRM offered students, parents, and other community members a chance to share concerns about the National School Lunch Program and ideas for improving school food.
