Thanks to a grant the students at Jackson Elementary receive two fresh fruit or veggie snacks each week. The program is called the Fresh Fruits and Veggies Program, and the goal is to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to low income schools in order to let the children sample a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and encourage healthy eating habits.

This program has improved our school by providing students with the nutritious food choices that they need to be healthy and learn. It has also encouraged our students to try new things.
