TV chef Rachael Ray is launching a charitable organisation aimed at helping children in the U.S. to eat more healthily, with the support of former president Bill Clinton.

Yum-o! will work with schools to improve cafeteria food, create scholarships, educate parents about healthy eating, and help fund charitable groups that feed needy children.

The organisation will work with Clinton’s Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and the American Heart Association to improve school food.

Clinton appeared on Ray’s TV show on April 26 to announce their collaboration. British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver launched a similar programme in the UK over two years ago, which has led to increased government funding for school meals, making healthier menus possible.

“Great food changes the entire quality of your life,” said Ray. “It’s just this great building block for families.”
