Q: What do you think convinced Rhonda to let you try cooking lunch at the high school?

A: I'm not sure really. Was it me? I don't think so. Was it the TV show? Possibly. Or, was it because it was the right thing to do and a great opportunity? Probably. Rhonda had done a great job of organizing the school food system over the years, but my message was that we needed to change the kinds of food coming into the school. So the fact that she let me in made me suspect that she kind of agreed with me and wanted to be helpful in this food revolution, which of course she was.
