Carolina Foothills Garden Club  Presents

Chef Ann Cooper

Ann Cooper is the Alice Waters for school lunches (and she worked with Alice waters). She is coming to Greenville for a lunch and learn in March, plus a few cooking classes at Charleston Cooks.

“Welcome to the Lunch Lessons Revolution!”

“I am the Renegade Lunch Lady. My life’s work is to transform how we feed

our children in school each day, from highly processed to highly nourishing

food – one school lunch at a time.”

Chef Ann Cooper is a celebrated author, chef, educator and enduring advocate for better

food for all children. Ann is a relentless voice of reform by focusing on the links between

food, family, farming and children’s health.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America,

Ann has been a chef for more than 30 years.

She has been featured in The New Yorker,

The New York Times, The Washington Post,

The San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago

Tribune, Newsweek and Time.

Ann has appeared on NPR's 'Living on Earth',

ABC's Nightline, CNN, PBS’s ‘To The Contrary’

and the CBS Morning Show.

Ann envisions a time soon when being a chef

working to feed children fresh, delicious,

and nourishing food will no longer be

considered “renegade”.
