Fresh, Local Lunch for Great, Local Kids
Monday, November 2, 2015 7:20 AM


On November 5th, your cafeteria will be serving an entirely locally-sourced meal for MN Thursday, which happens on the first Thursday of every month at all MPS schools! The meal will be a turkey hot dog, baked beans, broccoli salad, a Haralson apple, and a Jonny Pop, all of which were grown and produced right here in the Minnesota region.


To promote this month’s MN Thursday menu and farmers, we produced a quick video featuring Rodrigo Cala of Cala Farm, who grew the broccoli for the meal.  We hope that this video will get students and staff excited about the upcoming meal and introduce them to Rodrigo and his beautiful farm!


Can you help to share this video with the staff and students at your school?  It is a brief, 2-minute long video that could easily be shared in emails and TV-screen announcements, posted on websites and social media, and played in homerooms and classes. Here is the link to the video. (If using a school computer, remember to go to Youtube and override the video block before trying to play the video.)


Please feel free to contact Kate Seybold with any questions.


We appreciate your help, and we look forward to seeing you on November 5th in your school cafeteria for a delicious, local meal!
