SC Elementary Schools using USDA grant to promote fresh fruits & veggies!

The South Carolina Department of Education is working with 51 elementary schools across the state to increase children's consumption of fresh fruits and veggies with the help of a $ 1.17 million dollar grant from the USDA. Specifically, the Department of Education's Office of School Food Services and Nutrition is partnering with the state Department of Agriculture to work with local farmers to purchase home-grown fruits and produce for the program.
