U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer Meals

A pair of SE Minnesota school districts are getting national props for their efforts to keep kids well fed during the months school isn’t is in session.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Turnip the Beet Award recognizes outstanding summer meal program sponsors across the nation who work hard to offer high quality meals to children that are appetizing, appealing, and nutritious during the summer months.

Lake City Public Schools and Hastings Public Schools both were recognized with Silver Awards.

The Turnip the Beet Award was created to showcase sponsors who are going above and beyond to ensure that children in their care are receiving high-quality meals that are both nutritious and appetizing.
