“Revenge of the Lunch Lady, ” by Jane Black should be required reading for anyone concerned with the state of the national school lunch program.
In the words of the esteemed professor Marion Nestle:
This is Jane’s astonishingly well researched account of what happened to school meals in Huntington, West Virginia—after Jamie Oliver left.
Surprise: They got better!
The subtitle explains why: “How an unassuming bureaucrat outsmarted Jamie Oliver and pulled off an honest-to-god miracle in one of America’s unhealthiest cities.”
You’ll be glad you read it. Revenge of the Lunch Lady

I e read the article. Four times. I had my boyfriend read it. Then my father. It was informative and well-written right up to the end where it says McCoy was “forced” to dump many of the changes Jamie made to the lunch program, essentially “outsmarting” him and “saving” school lumches. Yet neither myself, my boyfriend, nor my father could find anywhere in the article as to what she actually did. If she made improvements or changes..the article fail d to mention what they were.
