Rivera: Less fast food in New York

My favorite quote out of this:
“There are too many fast food restaurants in New York, and our kids don’t want to eat at home. It’s very, very bad – it’s killing us with the diabetes and high blood-pressure…. Shut them down and train the kids how to cook, if they don’t know how to cook – put up a cooking school!”

that seems like it could be a groundbreaking idea. the way kids have after-school sports, art classes, etc; i wonder if opening culinary schools around the city would be appealing to families. i’m picturing the YMCA working with low-income families who would be letting their kids learn how to cook – the kids would learn something sustainable plus get a better meal than they might get at home.

wheels… spinning…………….
