I believe there should be breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, all for free and for every child that goes to school. And all food that is good, clean and fair.

Some suggestions for you :

I have a love affair with tomatoes and corn. I remember them from my childhood. I only had them in the summer. They were extraordinary.

To have a basic ingredient that can be prepared a million different ways is a beautiful thing.

If we want children to learn to tend the land and nourish themselves and have conversations at the table, we need to communicate with them in ways that are positive.

I once had an Early Girl tomato at my friend Jay's house, and I thought that was the best thing I'd ever had. But then I visited friends in Senegal, and I ate sea urchin pulled fresh out of the sea. It tasted like the ocean.

Food can be very transformational, and it can be more than just about a dish. That's what happened to me when I first went to France. I fell in love. And if you fall in love, well, then everything is easy.

I want every child in America to eat a nutritious, delicious, sustainably sourced school lunch for free.

I really like having someone who knows about food and what goes well together make a meal for me.

Buy foods from nearby farms and have that food served in the cafeteria.

I'm an optimist. I'm hopeful.

I think if you buy from people who are taking care of the land, you're supporting the future of this country.

We've been so disconnected agriculturally and culturally from food. We spend more time on dieting than on cooking.

Americans don't have deep gastronomic roots. They wanted to get away from the cultures of Europe or wherever they came from. We stirred up that melting pot pretty quickly.

The way we subsidize food makes it cheaper to go to McDonald's and get a hamburger than a salad, and that's insane. It's pure government policy.

I am an optimist of the first order.
