Grant Spotlight

"Farm to School"

The PLSAS Child Nutrition Department recently received donations from the Laker Educational Foundation to purchase equipment that will provide more local fresh fruits and vegetables to students.  

The equipment is called Robot Coupe and is basically an industrial sized food processor.  Child Nutrition partners with Wozupi Gardens in Shakopee MN for organic local produce.  They now are able to process in large quantities in house and do not always have to rely on a vendor.  This allows them to give students fresher tasting fruits and vegetables that are also higher in nutrient content because they are not processed days in advance.  Students are enjoying the fresher taste!

Sara Wintheiser from Speiker & Company in Prior Lake, presented a check to Lori Frank, President and Amy Weimerskirch, Vice-President of the Laker  Educational Foundation.  The proceeds were raised at the Fall Community Fest and a home football game.  The funds were part of a fishbowl game the employees of Speiker & Company put together 

and 100% of the proceeds were donated to LEF. 

We are very appreciative. 

Thank you!
