Veggie School Lunches

A Minnesota school district unveils a new, veg-friendly menu to offer students more options.

For most public school kids, vegetarian lunch options are limited to garden salads and French fries, but in Rochester, Minnesota, school administrators are meeting the demand for veg-friendly fare. This year students in all Rochester public schools will have a wide variety of vegetarian and gluten-free options. The new veg menu items include traditional alternatives such as veggie burgers, stir-fry, and fajitas, as well as more diverse eats, such as roasted peppers on flat bread, black-bean taco salad, and chipotle sweet potatoes. Some of the gluten-free options, including pasta in marinara and taco salad with chips, are also veg-friendly.
