Schools Going Local

Congratulations to Aversboro Elementary and Knightdale Elementary for going local!

These two schools have applied for and received a federal grant to fund a program that allows the school to purchase snacks for all the students, every day from September through May. Now get this, the snacks are fruits and vegetables purchased from local businesses approved by Child Nutrition Services for the Wake County schools. How cool is that! Maybe this will set a precedent for other schools and for our school lunch programs as well.
