Minneapolis Public Schools Nutrition Services served up one of Youth Farm’s Roots for the Home Team recipes March 4-6 in 30 schools (to 15,000 students!) across the district. Tic Tac Taco salad was a big hit with the students, who got to try and give feedback about this recipe, which will be served on the school lunch menu starting this week. The True Food Taste Tests, which happens three times a year, are designed to expose students to new, flavorful menu items and encourage them to think critically about their food. Youth Farm staff helped serve samples to students at Lyndale and Green Central schools. Check out the recipe and learn more about the Taste Tests at
