Kerrydale to serve Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Our school is one of the 138 schools in the state of Virginia that has been awarded the "Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant."  The purpose of this program is to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables students are exposed to, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption to improve their present and future health.  We will be able to provide a fresh fruit and vegetable snack to your child three days a week at no charge.  The students will have the opportunity to try some familiar items like apples, watermelon, carrots and radishes, as well as some more unusual items such as figs, persimmons and kumquats.  Please alert the school nurse of any concerns you may have regarding food allergies. We look forward to providing this experience for your child!
