"We must help schools transition from highly processed foods to more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and animal protein raised without added growth hormones and antibiotics," said Cooper. "There is real momentum around creating the very best education for our children. That starts with ensuring that children are ready to learn. Good nutrition for every child is an essential ingredient for success. My ultimate goal is to educate and inspire schools, parents and students to take bold steps to improve the quality of education by making better food choices."

To help schools learn to serve an increased amount of fresh, wholesome food, Cooper's nonprofit, F3: Food Family Farming Foundation, created the free online resource center --www.thelunchbox.org. Whole Foods Market kicked off a donation drive by contributing and then its customers got engaged and have donated more than $400,000 to develop this valuable resource.

"We're so excited and grateful that our customers have embraced the opportunity to get involved. In five weeks, we've been able to raise more than $400,000 through our check outs," said Robb. "This allows Chef Ann's Foundation to offer easily accessible, free resources for all schools. These tools will help them duplicate the success that Ann has created in Berkeley, Harlem and now Boulder."
