Thomas Mandery

Thomas Mandery Food Service Coordinator

I'm from Rochester, MN and have been cooking professionally since 2008- mostly in a restaurant setting. In late 2019, I was encouraged by a friend to apply for a position with MPS to see what the district had to offer. I was impressed and proud to see Minneapolis Public Schools taking the steps forward to supplying students with healthy, great tasting and diverse foods, so I took the job Starting January 2020. As we all know, shortly after that, we were in full lockdown. For the rest of the school year, throughout the summer, and into the following school year, I got to work in the community handing out meal boxes. It has meant a lot to me to use my skills serving the community- especially now at Loring. I look forward to seeing the great community of staff and students every day I walk in the door. With my experience in high-volume catering and fine dining, along with a strong skill in improvisation and organization, I bring my skills to the table to provide the students with healthy and delicious foods- despite the challenges we face with supply chain issues and implementing COVID safety guidelines to make our meal program as safe as possible for everyone.
