BG DecFruitThe Food and Nutrition Program provides low cost, high quality, nutritious breakfasts and lunches. Offering students fresh and tasty choices is important! 

Your suggestions and feedback on wellness are always welcome!

Meals are prepared onsite in each school kitchen with an emphasis on baking with whole grain flours, along with serving a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables to encourage healthy eating. 

We offer the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable program at three elementary schools- Fair Oaks, Garden City and Crest View. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides all children in participating elementary schools with a variety of free fresh fruit and vegetable snacks within the school day. It is an effective and creative way to introduce fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options.  Schools with the highest enrollment of students eligible for free and reduced-price meals are given priority for participation in the FFVP.  For more information on this exciting and healthy option, please click here.
