Breaking News! Philadelphia passes menu labeling legislation.

Beginning on Jan. 1, 2010, chain restaurants with more than 15 outlets in Philadelphia will be required to disclose calories on menu boards, and calories, saturated and trans fat, sodium and carbohydrates on printed menus. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the measure passed by the Philadelphia City Council is the strongest in the nation so far. We hope that the DC City Council will follow the lead of our neighbors to the north and act now in support of the DC MEAL ACT!
