Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program
Alhambra School District received a grant for our schools to participate in the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program offered through the Arizona Department of Education. Students at Carol G. Peck, Cordova Elementary, Granada East, Granada West, James W. Rice, Madrid, Sevilla East, Sevilla West, Simpson School, Valencia Newcomer, and Westwood Elementary will receive a free fresh fruit or vegetable snack twice a week. We will provide our students with sugar snap peas, star fruit, lady apples, and yellow grape tomatoes. In addition to providing these tasty snacks we will also provide a nutrition lesson about the fruit or vegetable. This program is a great way to introduce young children to different fruits and vegetables and instill a love for eating healthy.
