True Food Taste Test at Lower
Monday, November 16, 2015 6:10 AM


Three times each year, the MPS Culinary & Nutrition Services department works with schools, partners and volunteers to conduct True Food Taste Tests at 40 MPS schools during lunch, reaching about 20,000 students across the city. The taste tests allow students and staff the chance to try samples of new, flavorful menu items and participate in a recipe naming contest.


At the Lower Campus, during lunch on November 19th, students will taste Apple Kohlrabi Slaw made with fresh kohlrabi from Seed to Seed Farm in Balsam Lake, WI. The goals of taste tests are to get students excited to try new, flavorful foods and encourage them to think critically about their food (beyond just whether they like or dislike it). Students will have a chance to participate in the New Name Contest to rename the dish when it’s served on our menu.
