Fighting childhood obesity, helping schools save money, and saving the planet with Ecopreneur Dan Gibbs.
Childhood obesity is on the rise, and having a healthy school lunch is one way to fight this problem. While many schools are working to improve their lunch programs, it’s not uncommon still to see pre-packaged and unhealthy foods piled on plates with not a fresh fruit or vegetable anywhere in sight. Changing how kids eat is one of the most effective ways to improve their health, which is why school lunches are getting so much attention these days from people like Michelle Obama and chef Jamie Oliver, and why Congress passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act in December 2010. As the founder and CEO of Home Town Farms, ecopreneur Dan Gibbs has a vision that can help, getting school lunches and our kids back on the right track.
