113 Idaho schools awarded fruit and veggie grants

BOISE - More than 100 Idaho elementary schools were awarded millions of dollars in Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, announced State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra.

The program provides kids in participating schools with a variety of free, fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day.

Schools with the highest free-and-reduced lunch student enrollment are given priority for the program.

They are also encouraged to find sources for locally grown produce and to feature lessons on where and how they are grown, harvested and brought to market.
