This week on Hot Grease, Nicole Taylor runs through the weeks food headlines and chats with Beatriz Beckford, school food coordinator for Brooklyn Food Coalition. Together, they discuss how parents can get more involved at the ground level in improving how their children eat at school and elaborate on the scale of feeding NYC children. Also tune in for a Hot Five on some must-attend food events! This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

“You have to get involved if you’re unhappy with what’s being served. NYC is the second largest purchaser of food next to the military. The way it trickles down into our schools varies school by school. It’s important that people understand that and work on making changes on the ground, in the schools.”
