Harvard to Give Jamie Oliver The Healthy Cup Award

Food personality Jamie Oliver will soon join Lee Iacocca and "father of aerobics" Kenneth Cooper as a recipient of Harvard's Healthy Cup Award. Oliver will be in town on May 22 to receive the award, which honors those who who have made "significant contributions to public health and nutrition through acts of good will, charity, leadership, innovation, policy change, or the vigorous promotion of a healthy lifestyle." Of those qualifications, "vigorous" best describes Oliver, a celeb chef of maniacal energy who got the whole "pink slime" ball rolling and who plants himself in impoverished communities to wrench control of childrens' palates back from the junk food they're so used to. Where do you suppose he'll eat while he's in town?
