Today’s Newsday offers an image-packed collection of stories on the school lunch as it is served and paid for in Long Island, New York. Check out the image gallery, which includes Berkeley schools chef Ann Cooper’s dream school lunch pictures above (with recipes).

    I’m very pleased to see Ted drawing attention to projects like this, especially Ann Cooper’s School Lunch Initiative. My firm Wowhaus (http://www.thewowhaus.com) has been involved in the development of the Edible Schoolyard for over the past decade, and we most recently designed and made all of the furniture for the Dining Commons supporting Ann’s project.
