With this funding we are able to offer our students fresh fruits and vegetables throughout their school days that does not include the regular breakfast, lunch or snack programs.

With the help of teachers, school nurses, parents and food service staff the funding will enable us to promote good health, nutrition and physical activity. We will be able to provide nutrition education, materials, needed equipment and staffing during their regular school days and special events.
