This year our elementary school did not qualify for the fresh fruit and vegetable grant. In previous years, a fresh fruit or fresh vegetable snack was served in the afternoon to our elementary students. Our community businesses, organizations, and other community members have stepped up and donated funds for our students to continue this program, because our students love these fresh snacks. We will be able to continue serving our students healthy snacks this year because of our community support.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our goal of serving fresh healthy afternoon snacks to our elementary students was accomplished by members of our community helping with funding of purchasing these fresh items.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The biggest challenge was having funds to buy the fresh fruits and vegetables. Our community provided funding for these healthy snacks.
