District 80 has participated in the program since the 2009-2010 school year. Bethel will be in its fourth year of the program this year.
“The program went very well and many students benefited from the fresh fruit and vegetables,” said District 80 Superintendent Mike Green. “It was a success (last year) and we're excited to have it again this year.”
Several schools in the Centralia area have also received funding for the program this year, including Grand Prairie Elementary School.
