What We Are Reading:  Revenge of the Lunch Lady
By: Jane Black for The Huffington Post
How an unassuming bureaucrat outsmarted Jamie Oliver and pulled off an honest-to-god miracle in one of America's unhealthiest cities.

There's only so much you can do when you have $1.50 to spend on ingredients for each meal.
