Amid some national buzz about the St. Paul district's nutrition program, an official delegation invited itself over to St. Paul's Crossroads Elementary for lunch Tuesday, March 26. There was a head honcho from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Congresswoman Betty McCollum, a smattering of legislative aides and a pediatrician from the Mayo Clinic. They came to learn more about the district's all-out health-food kick and its bid to get a head start on stricter federal school lunch rules, announced earlier this year.
