Rachael Ray to Offer School Lunch Recipes

I've heard Rachael mention before that she was inspired by Jamie Oliver's quest to get healthy food into school lunch programs, so I was excited to see this article in the New York Post. Rachael is working through her Yum-o! Organization to team up with the New York City Department of Education. The Yum-o! website has a ton more information about the program here.

Rachael's recipes will be served in more than 1,600 New York City public schools to over 600,000 public school children. The kids will be trying NYC Sizzling Soft Taco with Southwest Roasted Chicken and Corn Relish, Yum-o! Ranch Sauce, Vegetarian "Veg-Head" Beans, and steamed broccoli.

Here's what Rach had to say about it:

"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Department of Education’s Office of SchoolFood to help get kids excited about the food they eat while embracing a healthier lifestyle," said Ray. "Growing up, my family had a very positive relationship with food and cooking and that relationship helped shape my lifestyle and businesses. I hope that through this partnership I can pass on my experiences with food and that they inspire these students to make better choices about the food they eat."
