Rachael Ray to Launch Charity for Kids

J.M Hirsch recently interviewed Rachael Ray, who revealed that early next year, she plans to start a charity called CAKE, which stands for Cooking and Kids Everywhere. The charity "will focus on feeding hungry children and educating families about nutrition. It also will provide disadvantaged and aspiring cooks with culinary scholarships."

Rachael cites Jamie Oliver as her inspiration for starting the charity. Oliver has been on a crusade to get healthier food into schools in England. Rachael and Jamie must have some sort of kindred spirit mind meld because Jamie recently said that while he cannot take on the same crusade in the US, he thought Rachael Ray would do a good job.

"I would love to talk to him because I want to learn from him. I am so proud of him," Ray said recently. "I want him to help me figure out how (to replicate his successes here), cause I'd love us to pair up."

Jamie Oliver said Rachael is "the most powerful woman in food in the country right now" and he thinks she is up to the task. Rachael will use her "shows, books and products to try to influence the national conversation about childhood nutrition and obesity."
