How often do we hear that? Not often enough. But here is a story to make our rainy (where I am , anyway!) Sunday feel a lot better. On a shoestring budget, New York city schools are serving up healthy, cooked meals; changing the children’s perception of food and influencing the choices that become available from food suppliers. I would have liked to know how they worked the budget to change over from steamers and freezers to actual functioning kitchens. Perhaps that happened earlier, (the program is about 7 years old) in times when knives were for chopping salads and not for slashing school budgets. Here is the report from the New York Times.
