Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program at EEACS Encourages Healthy Eating


Students in grades K-6 are learning about the benefits of healthy eating through a grant-funded fruit & vegetable program.

Allentown, PA, November 29, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Thanks to a grant from the Department of Education, Executive Education Academy Charter School in Allentown has commenced a Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. This program will encourage healthy eating through a variety of educational initiatives and opportunities.

“We are hoping to expose our students to new foods and give them opportunities to try things they may have never tried before,” says Robert Lysek, founder and CEO of the Allentown charter school.

The high price of fruits and vegetables has made it difficult for students in cities like Allentown to access fresh produce. EEACS will be making fresh fruits and vegetables available to students through its lunch program. Lysek hopes students may find a new favorite food.

The educational initiative kicked off with a newsletter to students and parents, highlighting several different foods like persimmons, jicama, and honeydew. This monthly newsletter will feature new foods, fun quizzes, and classroom activities.
