District Selected for Federal Fruit and Veggie Program

Several NSD elementary students will receive free, fresh fruit and vegetables this school year thanks to a state-administrated grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides children with a variety of fruits and vegetables during the school day. Under the National School Lunch Act, schools with the highest enrollment of students identified for free and reduced-cost meals are given priority for participation. 

Schools participating this year include Centennial, Central, Endeavor, Greenhurst, Iowa, New Horizons, Park Ridge, Sherman, Snake River and Willow Creek.
