The Patachou Foundation Speakers Forum, our signature fundraising event, will be on April 12, 2018 at 6:30pm. Building on the success of last year’s event, we are proud to feature Chef Ann Cooper.

Chef Ann, also known as the Renegade Lunch Lady, is an outspoken voice of reform advocating for whole, fresh ingredients in school meals and has spoken as a woman in food for decades. After working in restaurants for over 20 years, she has transformed school lunchrooms across the nation.

Chef Ann is the author of three best-selling books and a frequent TED Talk presenter. She has been recognized as a W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Food & Society Policy Fellow and previously served as President of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs, an industry group that leverages the voices of talented women.
