Lewistown Elementary School will receive $30,525 as part of a federal grant program to ensure students have fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day.  The program offsets the costs to the school district and includes nutrition education so students take the healthy eating habits home.  The school is one of 200 elementary schools around the state to receive a grant.  Pennsylvania was awarded a total of $5 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.  Schools that qualify for the grant have more than 50-percent of the students qualify for free and reduced meals.
