Laquanda ROCKED the room

Today I was lucky enough to be inspired - by an amazing 17 year old senior from Philadelphia's University City High School.

At a presentation about farm to school programs in the Philadelphia Public Schools, Laquanda Dobson rocked the room with her passion for eating well, growing fresh food, and teaching younger children how to eat smarter.

Laquanda's excitement renewed my commitment for getting kids involved in growing, preparing, and eating healthful food that tastes great. With all our work to legislate, mandate, and regulate better food for kids, we need to remember the importance of inspiration. Laquanda inspired me - as I am certain she inspires her peers, the children she teaches, and adults working with her in Philadelphia.

How can you inspire a young person to experience the joy of eating well today?
