FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES PROGRAM
We are pleased to announce that four of our schools, Great Brook, Antrim Elementary, Pierce Elementary and Francestown Elementary have been selected by the New Hampshire Department of Education to participate in the Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program for the 2012-13 school year. The FFVP is a federally funded program which provides all children in qualifying schools with FREE fresh fruits and vegetables, to be offered at times during the school day other than breakfast and lunchtime. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and veggies as healthy snack options. Last year was our first experience with the FFVP and it was a great success. Students thoroughly enjoyed the varity of fresh fruits and veggies and were excited to try new things!
Last year was our first year of operation for our brand new kitchen at Peterborough Elementary School. It was a great success thanks to the support of PES staff, students and parents. We thank you all and look forward to an even more exciting year for 2012-13!
GRAB N' GO BREAKFAST
Students need to fuel up with the most important meal of the day. Conval Food Service offers a Grab n' Go breakfast at Francestown, Hancock, Pierce and Temple Elementary Schools. We will also be offering the Grab n' Go at Greenfield Elementary this year. These quick and convenient bags provide students with a nutritious breakfast meal containing 2 servings of grain and/or protein, 1 serving of fruit and a milk. These fun packages are perfect at breakfast or snack time. Check with your child's school to see when the Grab n' Go Breakfast is offered.
Breakfast is available daily at all Conval Schools.
Have a wonderful school year!
