Fruit at lunch

By Karl, Cole Manor Healthy Comet | I learned that locally grown food tends to be fresher, and it has more nutritional value because it has more time to ripen. I feel like twice a week a new fresh healthy fruit or food should be added to the school lunch so some of us could try new things or eat more healthy fruits and food.
