Tarrah continues to work to promote and improve the school meal programs. As part of the School Food FOCUS Upper Midwest Regional Learning Lab, Tarrah developed an "Ingredients of Concern" list to be shared with food manufacturers nationwide in an effort to decrease the use of harmful ingredients in school menu items such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), artificial flavors/colors, and various binders/fillers in meat products (among others). In collaboration with the Mayor’s Office, Tarrah leads the district’s efforts to implement the Good Food Purchasing Policy (GFPP). In June 2017 Tarrah spearheaded the Board’s adoption of GFPP making CPS the fourth school district, and first outside of California, to adopt this policy.
