Change a Child's Diet

Change Their World

 

I founded the NYC Healthy School Food Alliance in October 2018, with four policy changes in mind:

  • Change the Food: Bring scratch-cooked meals—real food made by real people (not factories)—to every NYC public school;

  • Change the Mindset: Provide every grade with nutrition and culinary education so that kids can make the best choices and understand the power of healthy whole foods;

  • Grow the Food: Fund gardens at every NYC public school to give kids a connection between the earth and the table; and

  • Increase the Time: Lengthen the time kids have to to eat their lunches to 30 minutes.
