Federal Fruits & Vegetables

By  | 

Developing healthier lifestyles and habits during spring break and beyond is the goal of a new program at North High School.

The school is one of 25 in the state getting grant money to hand out fresh fruits and veggies for free to kids during school hours.

North got roughly 130 thousand dollars through the national program, and hopes the free goodies will help students grab healthy snacks instead of heading to the vending machines to fill up. Eau Claire North hopes the money will last through the end of next year.
