Fruit & Vegetable Program

Fruit & Vegetable Plus Milk Program at Upper Sumas

Our school participates in the BC Fruit & Vegetable Nutritional Program offered through BC Agriculture in the Classroom. Every month, students receive a BC grown fruit or vegetable snack to enjoy during class time.

Some objectives of the program are the following:

• to increase the consumption of local fruits and vegetables
• to increase the awareness of the health benefits of fruits and vegetables
• to increase the awareness of fruits and vegetables grown in BC
• to increase the awareness of the safe handling practices of fresh fruits and vegetables

In addition to the fresh fruit and vegetable snacks provided by the BCSFVNP, students also receive fresh BC milk.
