“Educating children about health and nutrition in a fun and interactive setting is a great way to get students excited about healthy eating at a young age,” Fresh Grocer President and Chief Executive Officer Pat Burns said in a press release.
“Fresh Finds offers students the basic tools needed to make healthier choices and gives them a chance to try new foods that not only taste good but are also nutritious, affordable and available at their local grocery store.”
