Minnesota Thursdays
Since 2014 we have served an entirely locally-sourced meal on the first Thursday of every month at all Minneapolis Public Schools! 
MN Thursdays are a fun, special way to highlight our Farm to School program, support the local food economy and offer students fresh, seasonal options. Make a plan to Eat With Us!
In April, our signature locally-sourced MN Thursday meal will feature authentic Somali cuisine. Branch out and let your taste buds try something new! As always, students and staff in every MPS school are invited to enjoy this month's menu:

🍴 Beef Sambusa, or a meatless option Lentil Sambusa, both from Hoyo Sambusa in Bloomington, MN


🍴 Basbaas Sauce (Green Somali hot sauce) created from scratch at MPS Culinary & Wellness Services. Don't worry, it's not very spicy!


🍴 Sabaayad (Somali Flatbread)  from DurDur Bakery right here in Minneapolis, MN


🍴  Bariis (Somali-style rice) with grains from InHarvest in Bemidji, MN


🍴 Dolsho Leen Leeh (Lemon Yogurt Cake) created from scratch at MPS Culinary & Wellness Services using our very own recipe!

MPS works to build our local food economy by purchasing from local sources as well as offering fresh, seasonal options through our Farm to School program.
