Around the World in 80 Trays


Around the World in 80 Trays - January 15-19, 2024

Around the World in 80 Trays

Around the World in 80 Trays is a state-wide event with the purpose of increasing global flavors in USDA School Meals Programs! DPI would like to acknowledge that food can do more than just nourish the body, but it can offer an invitation to explore the diverse cultures of Wisconsin students.

Join the School Nutrition Team and schools/districts across the state in this week-long culinary adventure, kicking off on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What better way to celebrate the unique cultural backgrounds of students across the state than by remembering the legacy of MLK Jr. and his dream of equality and inclusion for all.

Take The Pledge!

The SNT would love to see how you added more global flavors to your school meals. Send us a picture and you could be featured on our website, social media pages, in our newsletters and/or bulletins. Who knows, you might even grab the attention of USDA!
