Advocates gathered in Downtown Brooklyn Sunday to fight for quality food in public schools.

The NYC Healthy School Food Alliance and dozens of families marched across the Brooklyn Bridge calling on the Department of Education to provide food cooked from scratch, 

hands-on in-class nutrition, culinary education starting in Pre-K. They're also calling for school gardens and additonal time allotted in school schedules for for lunch and recess.

"Food is a social justice issue and every child deserves better food, and a garden, and nutrition education, and more time for their lunches," said Andrea Strong, the group's founder. 

NY1 has reached out to the education department for comment but have yet to receive a response.
