A feel good story from the inbox:

Last week 12 year old Jesse Gunn wins $45,000.00 in the Uncle Ben’s national cooking contest with his Lop Chong Fried Rice with transformation egg.
$30k will go to his school’s cafeteria makeover which it desperately needs.  Jesse wants this to kick-start a healthier lunch program and promote family’s cooking together.  
You can see Jesse’s more high end dishes on www.instagram.com/jessegunnrocks it will not disappoint.

Congrats to Jesse and the East Side Community School which will be receiving much needed funds!
