Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP)
We are pleased to share that we were awarded the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant this school year at Jameson Elementary School and Loranger Memorial School. Starting October 1, students at both schools will receive a fresh fruit or vegetable Tuesdays through Thursdays for the remainder of the school year. Fruits and vegetables will be a mix of both local produce as well as some very unique items that may be new to many students.
