School Lunch Reform and Ann Cooper's Bigger, Boulder Move
The world of public-school lunch reform is abuzz this week as chef/author Ann Cooper,
the outgoing Director of Food Services for the Berkeley Unified School
District, takes charge of Boulder's school cafeterias. Cooper earned
national acclaim for remaking Berkeley's meals program top to bottom in
three years' time. Out: transfats, high-fructose corn syrup, anything
processed and pre-packaged, frozen vegetables, syrupy canned fruit,
Wonder bread, vending machine snacks.
