Maria Rodale, inheritor of that name’s long-time connection with organic farming, recently asked me to share my thoughts about school meals with readers of her blog–Maria’s Country Kitchen–and at Huffington Post.

In a recent installment, I discuss how the school lunch program is maintained in a perpetual state of poverty, expecting “lunch ladies” to turn a measly $1 worth of ingredients into a full-blown meal. Today I look at some of the revolutionary work being done to teach those same “lunch teachers” how to cook from scratch, and the innovative program D.C. Central Kitchen is bringing to some D.C. schools, introducing local produce from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.

Yes, there are some good things happening in school food. They need our support.
