Dear Editor,

To promote a healthier New Jersey, I propose requiring all food and beverages sold on New Jersey K-12, Public College campuses and inside all public buildings to be vegan, gluten-free and produced in New Jersey.

Each packaged food and beverage label should also be required to carry the phone number of a statewide call center for heroin treatment services.

It is time the state steps up to lead by example on better health, fighting addiction and bringing jobs back to New Jersey.
