Home Grown: Menus of Wisconsin

The Home Grown: Menus of Wisconsin resources provide comprehensive materials for a three-week lunch cycle menu. The menus were developed by using a combination of from-scratch recipes submitted by WI school foodservice personnel and convenient, ready-made products. The menus use a large variety of products grown and produced in WI and available through the USDA Foods program.
