New Salad Bars
Thanks to HEB, Dole and the Seguin ISD, lunchtime at all seven elementary schools in the district will now feature a fresh and fun way to eat fruits and vegetables.
Committed to increasing healthier options for students, H-E-B has committed to donating seven salad bars to the Seguin ISD, a district where 69 percent of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. The self-serve produce bars are made possible through a partnership with Dole Food Company (Dole) and will feature a wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables to boost new choices for students at breakfast and lunch.
Hugh Topper, group vice president of Fresh for HEB, says the Seguin ISD is the first district that HEB has committed to in the state. He says HEB has a responsibility to take leadership in improving the health of their communities.
“We know that healthy eating habits — they have to start with children. The younger the age, the better and so we are excited to make this first donation. We are expected to do this as we roll out to other stores and other schools districts across the state,” said Topper. – See more at: http://www.seguintoday.com/default.asp?pid=949096&tblog=34005#sthash.zoX21HGL.dpuf
