FUTP60 Breakfast Cart Donation to Manson Schools
Manson High School is part of the Lake Chelan Valley where our Chelan Fresh growers and employees live and produce some of the best apples, cherries, and pears in Washington state. Chelan Fresh was thrilled that Manson chose to participate in Fuel Up To Play 60 and they are one of 15 FUTP 60 schools in 11 states across the country to receive a new portable breakfast/salad bar cart donation. The portable breakfast/salad bar carts are being provided to recipient schools in Arizona, California, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, South Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington for the 2018-2019 school year and will help increase student access to more nutritious food choices in schools.
Finding new ways to serve nutritious options in schools (like low-fat and fat-free dairy products, fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains) can make a difference in helping provide all students with the nutrition they need to fuel their full potential. The rolling carts from Chelan Fresh will provide easy solutions to school nutrition and meal service teams, allowing them the opportunity to position the cart in areas that provide students easy access to nutritious foods.
The effort marks Chelan Fresh’s support of Fuel Up to Play 60 for the seventh consecutive year, reinforcing the companies’ ongoing commitment to help K-12 schools improve or expand their nutrition and physical activity programs through Fuel Up to Play 60. Chelan Fresh is proud to support schools in our community and across the nation who strive to provide access to more nutritious foods in school meal programs.
