Peaches were distributed to the school on Tuesday. All students should receive theirs within the next few days.
These are being received through the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Program. Growers in BC are gearing up to provide these healthy snacks to the 1,270 schools throughout British Columbia enrolled in the program.
The year will start off with blueberries, plums and – new to the program for 2011-late peaches. The 409,000 students taking part in the program will receive the yummy treats 13 times over the school year, free of charge.
