Students in Croton Pre-K, Harry W. Lockley Early Learning Center, and George Washington Intermediate School will be participating in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Three times a week students will be served a fresh fruit or vegetable in their classroom. Students also receive a quick educational lesson on what they are being served.
