Tell CEO Steve Easterbrook: Stop marketing junk food to children!

McDonald’s wants us to believe it’s modern and progressive -- without making any of the necessary changes to earn that description. That’s why we’re challenging McDonald’s power at the very heart of its global corporate operation today at its annual shareholders' meeting.

Stand with us today and tell McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook to stop marketing McDonald’s junk food to children.

McDonald’s has made every effort to appear to be doing the right thing by children’s health. As early as 2006, McDonald’s implicitly acknowledged the marketing of junk food to young people was wrong by pledging to voluntarily reduce it.
OAK BROOK, IL – On the heels of the introduction of Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines urging corporations to stop marketing junk food to kids, McDonald’s is facing another challenge to clean-up its act. At its annual meeting today, the first ever shareholder resolution was introduced concerning a corporation’s “health footprint.”

This initiative has struck a chord particularly among health professionals who work in the communities most targeted and impacted by McDonald’s marketing. In overwhelmingly Latino communities such as Pilsen, over 50% of children and adolescents and 65% of adults are overweight.
