Welcome to our Fresh Fruit and Veggie Program!
Thank you for visiting our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable site! We are the proud recipients of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant, provided by the New Jersey State Department of Agriculture! Check us out for our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Calendar, some recipes, fun facts, and exciting information about our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays either a fresh fruit or vegetable will be served at our school. Ask your child about their experience with new and/or favorite foods that they have tried in our program.
At Cicely L Tyson Elementary school we encourage healthy eating habits! Please try to extend your children's fruit and vegetable experience by encouraging fruits and vegetables at meal times and for snacks. Your participation will contribute to the success of this project!
We hope you will extend our goals among your family and promote fruits and vegetables. Thank you for your support!
