Minnesota Thursdays
Minnesota Thursdays
Since 2014 we have served an entirely locally-sourced meal on the first Thursday of every month at all Minneapolis Public Schools!
It's a way to highlight our Farm to School program, support the local food economy and offer students fresh, seasonal options. 

2020-2021 School Year

MN Thursdays are currently on pause due to COVID-19 and distance learning. We look forward to bringing back our MN Thursday tradition when we return to our school cafeterias and normal food service operations. 

A Year of MN Thursdays!
