Market Basket

MarketbasketThe goal of Market Basket of the Month is to bring together the school cafeteria, classroom, home and community through a strategic effort to promote healthy habits for students.

Objectives include increasing student:

  • Knowledge of, familiarity with and preference for a variety of fruits and vegetables
  • Participation in daily physical activity

Market Basket of the Month features a different fruit and/or vegetable each month. Participating schools include the selected produce on the school cafeteria menu. The schools also use a variety of program resources to give students hands-on opportunities to explore, taste and learn about the importance of eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and being active every day.

During the summer months the Market Basket of the Month program also partners with Buy Fresh Buy Local® partners in York County to promote local fruits and vegetables.
