Throughout the last week of school, Long Beach elementary students were provided fresh strawberries as a fruit option during lunch. The strawberries were from a local farm as part of the district’s growing involvement in the Long Island Farm to School Program. This delicious fruit option was incredibly well received across the district, as evidenced by the smiling faces and kind words received. One East School second grader exclaimed, “These strawberries are a 10 out of 10!” The school district plans on expanding the initiative this fall.
