Compelled by her own frustration with school meals — both as a mother and a teacher — one teacher known anonymously as “Mrs. Q” committed to eating school lunch every school day in 2010 just like her students. Mrs. Q documented her experience and described the meals by blogging, tweeting and sharing photos on her blog Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project.

Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project caught the eye of child health advocates around the United States. The country has a growing interest in childhood obesity and school lunch reform, thanks in part to programs like First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative and Chef Jamie Oliver’s “Food Revolution” on ABC. Mrs. Q has been interviewed on Good Morning America, The View, National Public Radio, and the Gayle King Radio Show. Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project has been featured on abcnews.com, AOL Health, Yahoo!, msnbc.com, cnn.com, and in USA Today.

In October 2011, Sarah Wu revealed herself and published a book entitled, Fed Up with Lunch: The School Lunch Project: How One Anonymous Teacher Revealed the Truth About School Lunches –And How We Can Change Them! Mrs. Q continues to use her blog as a gathering place for people concerned about children’s food and health with her blog’s audience of parents, nutritionists, doctors, chefs, and “foodies.” She is married and the mother of two boys.
