School lunch reform in Baltimore

(article, Culinate staff)

Kids in the Baltimore public schools this fall are getting a whole new diet in the cafeteria, reports. "Long a place where the typical diet centered on snack foods, soda, and fried chicken in a box from the corner store, Baltimore is going Berkeley," writes Melody Simmons. "Gone are the days of rubbery chicken nuggets and fries. In their place the chef plans to offer roasted poultry and baked herbed potatoes." And oh, yeah, head chef Tony Geraci plans to use as much local produce as possible.
