Tell us how you Choose to Eat Well and earn yourself a free Minnesota Thursday Meal at your local SPPS cafeteria
Nutrition Services at Saint Paul Public Schools has recently partnered with Minneapolis Public Schools to support Minnesota farmers and serve fresh food to students with “Minnesota Thursdays.”

On the first Thursday of each month, both districts’ menus will feature seasonal Minnesota-grown ingredients. This new effort highlights local farmers, ranchers and companies while providing fresh, delicious lunch options for our students. Now, staff has the opportunity to eat - and support - fresh and local food as well!

Simply fill out this survey and tell us “How you choose to eat well,” and you will receive a coupon to eat one free MN Local Thursday meal at an SPPS cafeteria. Present your coupon to an SPPS Nutrition Services staff member and receive your free meal. Model healthy eating habits and eat your fresh, local meal with SPPS students.

Take a picture of your tray and use the hashtags #MNThurs #ChooseWellLiveWell to share with other SPPS staff all the great, local options!
