The Lunch Box.Org – This web site is the brainchild of “The Renegade Lunch Lady”, Chef Ann Cooper, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America.  When interviewed by Education World, Cooper says,  “I have found that if you offer children real, tasty food, instead of sugary snacks, they will enjoy it and ask for more. But we also need to establish their relationship with food. Creating hands-on experiential learning through cooking and gardening classes will help them be more in tune with real food and its benefits. Making a change toward a system that supports that certainly will cost more money than the current system; however we’re going to either pay now to fix the system or pay later with higher health care costs.”

The Lunch Box is a web-based portal that enables all schools and school districts to make a healthy difference for all children in America by providing relevant information and the pragmatic tools necessary to make good food available for all kids.

The Lunch Box is in beta mode. When fully functional, it will provide the multi-faceted approach necessary to transition any processed food based K-12 school meal program to a whole foods environment where food is procured regionally and prepared from scratch for the student population. As a free resource, The Lunch Box will provide the essential “tools” for examining, learning about, and implementing this type of healthy meal program. From the “why” to the “how to,” The Lunch Box will offer a complete menu of choices for those seeking to implement program change in their schools and districts.
