FILE - In this June 12, 2104, file photo, first lady Michelle Obama stands with Sam Kass, White House Senior Policy Adviser for Nutrition Policy, before they make salads from vegetables harvested from the White House garden with area students in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington. President Barack Obama’s personal chef is leaving after nearly six years in which, unlike any assistant White House chef before him, he cooked up policy alongside his meals. Kass held the title of senior policy adviser for nutrition policy, which gave him a seat at the table to help administration officials hash out everything from an updated “Nutrition Facts” label for processed foods to new government standards to cut the amount of fat, calories and sodium in federally subsidized school meals.
