Students in Minneapolis and St. Paul public schools will eat lunch food that comes from Minnesota farmers on the first Thursday of every month.

School administrators say Minnesota Thursdays stems from the Farm to School programs at both districts.

Students in St. Paul and Minneapolis public schools this coming Thursday will eat food coming from farmers within a 200-mile radius of the Twin Cities. Lunch includes grass-fed beef hot dogs from Thousand Hills Cattle Co. in Cannon Falls. Corn on the cob will come from Pahl Farms in Apple Valley and Zywiec Farms in Cottage Grove. Watermelon will be delivered from Riverside Farms in Elk River.

School officials say they’re not only supporting Minnesota farmers, but also providing healthy meals and teaching students about nutrition and agriculture.
