A Letter from our Chef

Taher, Inc. welcomes you to the 2020-2021 school year! We are excited to return to serve the students and families of Minnehaha Academy. Given the ever-changing challenges surrounding COVID-19 we want to ensure you that student and employee safety is our number one priority. Every aspect of the dining experience has been under review to ensure all participants are safe during the entire meal service. We have specific procedures and protocols designed to allow for adequate social distancing, elimination of common touch points, proper hand sanitizing and adherence to COVID-19 requirements for meal preparation, serving, cleanup and disinfecting. Our staff will be wearing masks and gloves at all times when in the kitchen and serving areas and have completed required training classes on COVID related safety protocols. We will be serving all meals in closed compartmentalized containers at the Lower and Middle Schools with students eating in the classroom. All self-service options at the Upper School will be individually packaged. While it may look different this year, we want to ensure you that the same made-from-scratch meals are being offered. We look forward to serving the Minnehaha Academy community this school year.

A personal, nutritious approach.

If you ask our students, they will say the food at MA is the best in town! Our students enjoy the delicious entrées and our parents feel good that their children are eating nutritious and healthy made-from-scratch food. Meet Chef Josh Wilkins & Laura DuBois and you will learn that it is a top priority for each student to have a lunch that supports his or her dietary requirements. Our food service is provided by Taher Corporation, which has a strong reputation, built over 30 years, for providing high quality food and exceptional service.
