Project Description

Since 2010 the Health Department has supported 21 charter, contract alternative, and private schools in creating healthier environments for students. This has been accomplished by developing strong, comprehensive wellness policies and implementing healthy school food and active school day practices. 

The Minneapolis Health Department is partnering with CKC Good Food and Done Right Catering to make more fruits and vegetables available to charter and private school students. Through a combined effort, five salad bars were placed in schools, and promotional activities were organized to build excitement and introduce new vegetables to students. Students at the partnering schools have access to a salad bar stocked with fresh fruit and vegetables every day of the week!

Why salad bars?
