Food-service managers and chefs from seven medical facilities along the 11-mile stretch between the downtown areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, called the Central Corridor, met recently to eat community garden carrots and local handmade tamales. They gathered, along with nine area colleges, not just to nosh, but to figure out how to keep more of what is collectively a $25 million annual food budget within the Twin Cities.
