Madison schools get money for more fruits and veggies


MADISON (WKOW) -- Several schools in Madison are part of about 180 in the state to receive federal grant money to provide more fruits and vegetables to students.

Wisconsin received just over $3 million from the USDA's fresh fruit and vegetable program.

It designates funding to schools to provide healthy snacks for students outside of breakfast and lunch.

The Department of Public Instruction says it will reach nearly 60,000 students in Wisconsin.
