The school bell rings at 12:36 p.m. on a recent Tuesday at Thurston Middle School. Teenage boys run into the gymnasium, and the sound of yelling and sneakers screeching on the wood floors envelops the room. It's only a couple minutes until the first dodgeball game starts. The boys run to their teams and line up the balls. Physical education teacher Michael Bair pops a student-made CD titled "Dodgeball" into the sound system. Billy Idol's "Dancing with Myself" and other songs play in the background as a game commences, balls flying across the gymnasium.

Many Top of the World Elementary School students said goodbye on Wednesday to one-time-use plastic bags, brown sacks and Lunchables. Instead, students came with colorful lunch boxes, Tupperware of all sizes, and a few kids even had Tiffins. "I was really surprised," said student council member Spencer Collins, 11. "I thought there was only going to be a couple of kids, but there was like 80. There was a lot of kids. We should keep doing it. " The K-5 school kicked off its newest Green Team initiative, Waste-Free Wednesdays, to encourage kids to live more sustainability at least one day a week.

Chef Azmin Ghahreman lives by several phrases. "My father taught me to put food on people's table, never take it away," Ghahreman said inside Sapphire Laguna, the restaurant he opened in 2007 on Coast Highway. That led Ghahreman to start serving free lunches to needy children at Skyview Elementary and Middle School in Orange through Project Hope Alliance, an Orange County nonprofit dedicated to helping educate homeless children. Ghahreman hopes to instill healthy values when it comes to eating and cooking.

It seems that every time we turn around chef Azmin Ghahreman of Sapphire is involved in something new. This time it?s Every Child is My Child, a school lunch program. As the father of three young children, he was inspired by the Obama administration?s focus on better nutrition for schoolchildren to get involved in the lunch programs at the schools his children attend ? St. Anne?s and St. Margaret?s. Eschewing the usual diet of starchy, packaged and processed fare that is partly responsible for the epidemic of obesity in this country, he prepares menus based on the Mediterranean diet with its balance of protein, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy and healthy oils.
