FoodCorps has spent the past decade fighting our fast food nation by connecting kids to healthy food in schools. Today the organization’s founder, Curt Ellis, lifts the lid on the current school cafeteria ecosystem, and the domino effects a bad diet has on our wellbeing and economy at large.

We discuss how school cafeterias are moving away from heat-and-serve to fresh cooking, why it’s so important to have children actively involved in menu building, and why now is the perfect time to transform our kid’s lunch trays.

This episode is sure to give you some serious food for thought as to the different ways you integrate food education into your everyday life, and we strongly encourage listeners to learn more about the great work FoodCorp is doing!
