School Lunch Breakfast Club

The Let’s Talk About Food Breakfast Club is a “Food Think Tank”, a once-a month working and networking session focused on School Food in Massachusetts. Co-chaired by chef Jody Adams, the Breakfast Club connects a broad cross-section of civic and policy actors, school officials, academics, chefs, professionals from not-for-profits and for-profits. Our focus is on sustainable change in School Food in Massachusetts. Our objective is not to start yet one more program, but to strengthen and enhance existing ones by building networks, partnerships and public profile. At each meeting, a member gives a short spotlight talk on their work and interests.
