Farm2School and the Minneapolis Public Schools' Food Truck were at the July 30 Market for Youth at the Market Day. Visitors received information on how these organizations help enhance nutrition for children, tasted samples and enjoyed activities with the kids.
Farm2School promotes children’s health by providing fresh, healthy and minimally processed foods to schools, while building markets for farmers whose products have historically been absent from school lunch trays. This program is happening in Minnesota and across the United States.
Staff from Farm2School introduced kids to vegetable with this Veggie Grand Prix game and veggie/fruit tattoos.
The Food Truck serves specific Minneapolis neighborhoods with free breakfast and/or lunch for anyone 18 & under. It can also be rented for a private function, or reserved for special school-related events.
Staff from the MPS Food Truck handed out fresh veggie snack samples.
