One problem is that Americans are spending more of their food budget on processed foods.
And we are feeding our children processed foods at school

Mark Bittman’s New York Times op-ed:
Eating patterns are set when we’re young, and 31 million kids eat federally assisted school lunches. Thus the school lunch program is more than just an opportunity to feed hungry kids. It’s an opportunity to shape how kids — and grown-ups — will eat in the future. Teaching children bad eating habits means creating yet another generation of Americans who will have to break those habits; and, given what we now know about the effect of those habits on our health, that’s nothing short of criminal.
At the Women’s Government Contracting Forum we will be exploring how to provide healthy food to local school districts.
Lucy Komisar’s New York Times op-ed:

Each day, 32 million children in the United States get lunch at schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program, which uses agricultural surplus to feed children.

Sadly, it is being mismanaged and exploited. About a quarter of the school nutrition program has been privatized, much of it outsourced to food service management giants like Aramark, based in Philadelphia; Sodexo, based in France; and the Chartwells division of the Compass Group, based in Britain. They work in tandem with food manufacturers like the chicken producers Tyson and Pilgrim’s, all of which profit when good food is turned to bad.

The City School District of New Rochelle and the Mamaroneck Union Free School District have contracts with Aramark.
