Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program proves the opportunity for students to try different types of fruit and vegetables throughout the year.  On October 31, the Rambutan Fruit (looks like a sea urchin) was introduced.  This fruit is native to Southeast Asia and is rich in vitamins & minerals. Beyond the outer skin is a sweet cream colored fruit with a large seed in the middle.  As you can see, some of the kids liked it!
