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.
