True Food Taste Test

Our first True Food Taste Test of the year is coming up on November 10!  All students will have the chance to try a small sample of Red Rice Apple Salad in the cafeteria during lunch.  The goal is to get students excited about trying healthy, new foods.  Those who try a sample will get a True Food Taste Test Sticker and a chance to enter a contest to rename the salad for the next time it’s on the menu!  For more information and the recipe, visit the Nutrition Services website - http://nutritionservices.mpls.k12.mn.us/tftt.  Taste Tests are made possible by the Wedge Community Co-op.
