The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded $3 million to Tennessee schools that will be used to bring more fresh fruit and vegetables to students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunches. Schools participating in the program will provide fruit and vegetables to students as snacks at times other than when regular school meals are served. The state's director of school nutrition, Sarah White, said the initiative will help introduce students and families to healthy eating.
