The Minneapolis American Indian Center will promote access to free, safe drinking water at all times and provide only healthy beverages, as specified by beverage standards below, during all meetings (internal and external), events, and programming. Employees and visitors will continue to have personal choice of beverage(s) they purchase outside of the organization and bring to work; however, because we serve community members, we encourage all staff to model healthy choices by choosing not to consume sugary drinks or conceal consumption around community members.

All beverages served (e.g., at meetings) and sold (e.g., café, vendors) at the Minneapolis American Indian Center, will strive to increase the availability of healthy beverage options by providing the following:

  • Water (free, safe drinking water through fountains and similar outlets; unsweetened, 100% fruit-infused, plain or naturally flavored sparkling/seltzer).
  • Tea/coffee (unsweetened with only naturally occurring caffeine).
  • Milk (plain low-fat [1%] or fat-free [skim], or other unsweetened non-dairy milk alternatives).
