Beginning September 12, students at four YISD schools will receive fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day on Tuesdays and Thursdays through May 31, 2018.
Participating campuses are Capistrano, Cedar Grove, Constance Hulbert, and North Loop elementary schools.
These campuses were awarded more than $89,000 by the Texas Department of Agriculture to purchase fruits and vegetables for the program.
Officials with the district say the program is an effort to promote healthier eating habits and improve overall student well-being.
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program is under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is administered by the Food and Nutrition Service, which provides free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in participating elementary schools.
YISD applied for the program in the spring, and four campuses were selected.
