Lunch Lessons LLC, co-owned by Ann Cooper and Beth Collins, brings a uniquely qualified team to projects spanning food systems, culinary, finance and business services and school district administration experience.
Ann and Beth have worked together for over 12 years bringing their private sector backgrounds in business and food to the school food arena. Their hands-on experience in school district transition brings to their assessments the distinct experience of having "been there" through the challenges presented as districts and community partners decide to tackle the challenges of large scale school food system change. This lens of experience allows for a realistic understanding of the complex relationships that exist in school districts and what kinds of goals and results are realistic, given the distinct conditions of each district. Having successfully led districts through systemic change puts Lunch Lessons LLC at the forefront of school food transition in the United States.
