Milk petition delivered to Sen. Harkin

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Volunteers pushing for healthier milk in Eastern Iowa schools delivered 1,000 signatures to Senator Tom Harkin's office Wednesday.

The petition asks Senator Harkin to support including language in the Child Nutrition Act that gives schools the choice to buy milk free of artificial hormones. 

The project was organized by Food and Water Watch -- a nonprofit consumer orginization that works to ensure clean water and safe food.

"We're trying to educate people and let them know there is a concern with this synthetic drug that is continued to be produced in our food," said Stephanie Rynning.

Hormone-free milk as well as cookies were delivered along with the petition.
