ED, school districts keep junk food out [D87]

Northlake Herald-Journal (Chuck Fieldman):
A possible new state ban on the sale of junk food and soda in elementary and middle schools won't have an impact on public institutions serving students from Franklin Park, Northlake and unincorporated Leyden Township.

That's because Mannheim District 83, Franklin Park District 84 and Berkeley District 87, which includes part of Northlake, currently have no vending machines or sales of junk food or soda in their buildings.

Doesn't it seem nicer to quietly have the school districts do the right thing rather than have Governor Sanctimony milk it for a media event day-after-day-after-day...?
