Grant Program Helps Provide Healthy Snacks to Students

Students at four Racine Unified elementary schools get to try healthy new snacks like starfruit and radishes this year, through a federally-assisted grant program.

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program reimburses eligible schools for fresh produce offered in the classroom, giving students the opportunity to munch on familiar and unfamiliar snacks.

The grant program is serving 63,000 students at 184 Wisconsin schools this school year, including our partnering school - Julian Thomas Elementary.
