In a Minnesota school district, where students speak more than 100 languages and dialects, school nutrition professionals are hosting kitchen visits for Somali, Karen, Hmong and Latino parent groups who may feel uneasy about school meals. The outreach efforts help to ease parents' fears and give them a chance to see the operation up close and ask questions. On a recent tour, for example, a Muslim mother asked questions about pork products and was told that all menus are pork-free.
