This school was selected to be a member of a pilot program to encourage children to embrace a new fruit or vegetable each month.

These children are part of some 2 thousand statewide who are in the program fostered by the LSU AgCenter. It’s called Harvest of the Month, and it has involved 3 schools, but this is the only one in Central Louisiana.

LSU is hoping to expand the program based on what they’ve learned from these children.
