Ed Bruske is one of the low-key heroes of the school lunch reform movement in the U.S. A former Washington Post reporter, now a professional chef, urban gardener, food/urban agriculture educator and active blogger, he’s been fighting against the rising tide of industrial food in schools and his own community for a while now. As part of Parents for Better D.C. School Food, he blogs about his group’s efforts to change school lunch in the Capitol. They’ve had quite a bit of success, though the struggle continues on many fronts.
