Check out this great article from Civil Eats about how Betti Wiggins has been transforming school food in Detroit over the past four years.

The article, by Chris Hardman notes:

The change hasn’t occurred overnight. The Detroit Public Schools Office of School Nutrition, which serves breakfast and lunch to more than 55,000 kids in 141 schools, has worked hard to create such a dramatic nutritional turnaround. And much of the credit goes to the office’s executive director, Betti Wiggins.
