Midwest Menu

Date: October 6, 2016

Location: Schools across the Midwest

Posted September 2016

Join school districts across the Midwest in serving a healthy, regionally sourced lunch tray on Thursday, October 6th, 2016. Celebrate the power of procurement as you kick off National Farm to School Month!

A project of School Food Focus, the Midwest Menu is an opportunity for school districts across the region to highlight their healthy, local, and sustainable sourcing on the first Thursday of October. Participating districts will serve a variation on the following menu: whole muscle chicken, apples, a vegetable side dish, and a whole grain item. The Midwest Menu gives each district the freedom to design a menu that best highlights the special local and regional foods available in your area.
