Hear directly from our National Honorary Co-Chairs about why they support Cooking up Change:
"Healthy students are better prepared to learn. From the kitchen to the classroom, Cooking up Change empowers students to take an active role in their health and wellness. I congratulate them and look forward to seeing the results of their hard work."
Amy Rule, National Honorary Co-Chair of Cooking up Change, First Lady of the City of Chicago
"I’m proud to partner with the students of Cooking up Change in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. I admire their dedication and passion to bring that fight directly into their schools and make a difference in their own lives and their fellow students’ lives. More nutritious and more affordable groceries and meal options are the focus of Top Box Foods as well, and together we will reach more people through churches, community organizations and schools. These students are a great example of how every individual can be a part of the solution in the epidemic of hunger."
Christopher G. Kennedy, National Honorary Co-Chair of Cooking up Change, Founder, Top Box Foods
"Everybody finds something they care about doing in life, something that empowers them and brings out their talent. I completely admire that these students have found such passion, creativity and vision for making good food. I thank them for focusing this talent on school food in particular. I am happy to be working with these students in Cooking up Change to help make their vision for school food a reality in their schools and in schools across the nation."
