Chelan Fresh and FUTP 60 Help Students Fuel Up!
Studies continue to prove that students who fuel up with nutritious meals – particularly breakfast do better in the classroom. Unfortunately, more than 13 million students come from food insecure households, meaning they don’t have access to enough nutritious food on a regular basis. By providing 9 Fuel Up to Play 60 schools, across 3 states with portable breakfast/salad bar carts, Chelan Fresh and FUTP 60 are helping increasing student access to more nutritious food choices in school. The portable breakfast/salad cards will reach over 9,000 students, serving an estimated 1.1 million meals each year. Finding new ways to serve nutritious meals in schools (like low-fat and fat-free dairy products, fruits, vegetables and whole grains) is helping students fuel their full potential.
The portable breakfast/salad bar carts will be provided to select FUTP 60 schools Florida, Virginia and Washington for the 2019-2020 school year.
