Local schools get fresh deliveries

Three schools in the District 60 are receiving some fresh and healthy options.

The schools will benefit from an expansion to B.C.’s School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional program.

The Upper Halfway School, Upper Pine Elementary and Junior Secondary and Wonowon Elementary began the program in January.

B.C. grown fruit and veggie snacks are sent to
participating schools twice per week every other week for 14 weeks of the school year.

The program is supported by ActNow BC, which has a goal for British Columbia to be the healthiest region to host an Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Currently, fresh fruits and vegetables are delivered to students in 739 schools across the province.
