Schools in low-income communities awarded $120K to feed students fruits and vegetables | Local News |

Columbia and Lancaster have the two highest percentages of economically disadvantaged students in the county — 64% and 90%, respectively. Both districts provide all students free meals during the school year.
Recipients must spend a majority of their grant on purchasing fruits and vegetables, develop a plan to establish partnerships to reduce costs and provide nutrition education to students, a press release stated.
