I'm the Renegade Lunch Lady. My life’s work is to transform how we feed our children in school each day, from highly processed to highly nourishing food — one school lunch at a time.
Join the network of people throughout the United States and the world working to change the way our children are eating. Together, we’ll tackle outdated district spending policies, commodity-based food service organizations, political platforms with no mention of school food or child health — and ultimately the USDA — to ensure that kids everywhere have wholesome, nutritious, delicious food at school.
Sign up for “Ann Alerts” or take the “School Food Challenge” to connect with new ideas, strategies, tips, recipes, and others who care as deeply as you. If your school or community is working on food systems change be sure to check out thelunchbox.org: Healthy Tools to Help All Schools, there may be resources there that can help you. Your passion and commitment will help us make a difference for future generations.
I challenge you to do just one thing to make a difference in your own schools –eat lunch in a local school and see what you think, then inquire about the wellness policy in the local school district, volunteer in the kitchen, form a local task force, meet with school board members, plant a garden or at least the idea for a garden at a local school. One thing - Go for it and keep us posted of your progress on the Community Page at www.thelunchbox.org. Together, we’ll transform local changes into a stronger and healthier community for all children in every school. Let the Lunch Lessons Revolution begin!
