The bill outlawing lunch shaming in New Jersey is going to the floor! The Lunch Crisis Organization will be in Trenton to witness the bill being passed. With New Jersey soon joining the list of states that have passed this bill, we are directing our efforts to another state!
Our founder, Keertana, used Lunch Crisis resources to create community impact by petitioning & working with the town of Summit, NJ to install pedestrian walkway signs at a dangerous intersection.

The Lunch Crisis Organization attended the Global Summit at the UN. Keertana, our founder, was invited by the UN to meet with other like-minded young leaders who have pioneered their own paths to creating sustainable change.
Our founder, Keertana is meeting with Assemblyman Moriarty (of New Jersey) to discuss the passing of the bill [to outlaw lunching shaming] in the assembly.
The Lunch Crisis Organization collaborated with Granslost Skapande, a Sweden-based non-profit that helps assimilate Syrian refugees to Swedish culture, to exchange ideas, strategies, and more.
Our founder, Keertana is interning at the NYC Mayor's office where she is not only engaging with and helping the people of one of the largest cities in the world, but she is gaining skills to expand and improve the Lunch Crisis Organization.
The Lunch Crisis Organization inspired students from across the country to take part in the movement. We are in contact with over 10 students across the country to continue our expansion efforts. These students have chapters in their school where they initiate fundraising efforts, raise awareness, and put pressure on legislators. A few of the states we are expanding to are: Texas, Georgia, California, North Carolina, New York, and more.
