I am proud to have worked with Ed Wilkins during his years as the director of SFUSD Student Nutrition Services Department. As the school district nurse, I used to hear students say, “I don’t eat school food”. Now, when discussing food in the breakfast and lunch line, all I hear is “The food tastes good!” I even see teachers in line these days.
This turnaround has occurred thanks to the leadership of Ed Wilkins. Mr. Wilkins faced a daunting array of obstacles that were delineated in the article by Dana Woldow. He found a way to provide fresh and appealing food on a far too small budget, knowing that feeding students is an important component of providing an optimal educational for all of our students. Ed Wilkins is a super hero indeed.Filed under: Letters to the Editor
