Chef Ann Cooper a.k.a. “The Renegade Lunch Lady”


Chef Ann Cooper is a celebrated author, chef, educator and enduring advocate for better food for all children. In a nation where children are born with shorter estimated life expectancies than their parents because of diet-related illness, Ann is a relentless voice of reform focused on the links between food, family, farming and children's health and wellness. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Ann has been a chef for more than 30 years and is currently working overtime because she sees a need for change and has the gifts to help. She envisions a time soon when being a chef working to feed children fresh, delicious and nourishing food will no longer be considered "renegade."
