Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program

Jacques has been selected to take part in the federally funded Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. This means that we will be able to offer fresh fruit and/or vegetables to preschoolers, kindergarteners and first graders on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the year. They will be prepared by our food service staff and made available to students during their regular snack times on those days.
We are thrilled to be able to offer these healthy choices to our kids at no cost to families! Part of the goal of the program is to introduce children to different fruits and vegetables, so we will vary our offerings as much as possible. Beginning on Tuesday, September 15th, you will not need to provide a snack for your children on Tuesdays and Thursdays if you would like them to choose these healthy snacks.
I hope many families will take advantage of this great opportunity for our kids. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Food Service Manager, Rocio Johnson, at (603) 673-1811, Extension 5.
