Convened by FoodCorps and Bain Capital Double Impact, reWorking Lunch brings together senior leaders and decision-makers across the food system to collaborate across sectors, design solutions that lay the groundwork for change at scale, and take collective action to leverage the $18B our country spends on school meal programs annually towards better health outcomes for kids. Our goal is a future where healthier, more sustainable food is abundant and easily accessible for our nation’s kids at school.
reWorking Lunch is convening senior leaders and decision-makers across the food system to determine how we might:
Leverage the scale of 21,000 school districts to provide healthier, affordable menu items
Fuel product innovation that brings better-for-you alternatives that kids like and that are not more expensive
Create demand for healthier menu items and position school food as a high-quality dining experience
Ensure that school meal supply-chain operations make it easier, not harder, for school districts to procure (and manufacturers to provide) the healthy food schools want
Lasting solutions will only be realized through the collaboration of a multi-sector group of stakeholders who, together, leverage their specific skills and assets towards healthier and higher-quality school meals.
The Anchor Partner team consists of a select group of leading industry, philanthropic, non-profit, and school district partners that support the design of reWorking Lunch and who will provide thought leadership over the course of the 18-month project.
