On Wednesday, September 21, Fernbank students ate locally grown apples in the school cafeteria as part of the new DeKalb County Farm to School program. But that’s not all.
Students also brought an apple from home, and gave it to their PE coaches that day. Over 700 apples were collected for children in need. Three hundred apples were donated to children at Cook Elementary School, through Glenn Memorial Church's "Snack in a Backpack" program. The apples were packed into 150 backpacks for children at Cook by 24 Fernbank Cub Scouts. Great job boys! The remaining 400 apples were donated to My Sister’s House, a women and children’s shelter in Stone Mountain.
Thank you to Fernbank families for encouraging our children to eat an apple as well as give an apple.
