Chef Ann Cooper has been advocating for better school food for 15 years! A leading advocate for children's health, Chef Ann has worked with school districts around the country to improve their school meals. Also known as the "Renegade Lunch Lady," much of what Chef Ann has fought so hard for has now become the rule for most schools: daily access to fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins! School food can help children develop healthy eating habits for life, and Chef Ann is supporting schools as they transition to the food kids need to stay healthy!  — Michele

Chef Ann is a major advocate for children's health and nutrition, and she's not afraid to take on the big corporate and government entities that she believes are harming our children. She blogs mainly about school food, a controversial subject filled with misinformation fed by corporate interests. But she also takes on topics like fast food marketing to kids and the government shut down. She's not afraid to make enemies...if it means saving the health of our children.  — Michele

Chef Ann has over 12,000 followers on Twitter, and she's a tireless advocate for children's health and nutrition. ANYTHING in the media that has to do with the food children consume in school and out, Ann has something to say about it. She's entertaining and blunt and honest. She shoots straight from the hip and will let you know exactly where she stands. She tweets mainly about school food, a controversial subject filled with misinformation fed by corporate interests, but she also takes on topics like fast food marketing to kids and the government shut down. She's not afraid to call a policy or business out for bad practices..if it means saving the health of our children.  — Michele
