Whole Foods and Cooper have launched, a free resource to help food service directors make tangible changes in their cafeteria menus. The Web site features recipes, information on procuring natural foods from local vendors and training videos on such topics as cooking techniques and food safety.

"It is past time for a wake-up call! Look at what our children are being offered at school: processed foods high in fat, junk food, soft drinks loaded with sugar...the list goes on. We are in the throes of a public health time bomb," said Chef Ann Cooper, author of "Lunch Lessons" and "Bitter Harvest" and founder of the F3: Food Family Farming Foundation whose mission is to provide every child in America with healthy, fresh food at school.

"This is the social justice issue of our time, and schools have no money to help solve the problem," said Cooper. "I felt strongly about partnering with Whole Foods Market to help tackle this issue because their customers have a successful track record of rallying around a cause and making a real difference."

The Lunch Box will be supported in part by a donation from Whole Foods Market and a School Lunch Revolution donation drive at check-out stands in Whole Foods Market stores, and at now through September.

Daily Hair Tip
Naturally curly folks can tighten curls by spritzing hair w/2 teaspoonfuld of lime juice mixed w/a pint of water. Shampoo & condition & then spritz mixture. The lime's citric acid & oils help contract the outer layer of each curly strand & freshening up the curls. Air dry for extra curly punch.
