Produce Partners

Thank you to Detwiler’s Farmers Market and the Manatee Food Bank for their generous donation of fresh fruit and produce for our Soar in 4 classrooms. Our teachers created fruit and vegetable exploration centers inside their classrooms. Children compared and contrasted the fruits and vegetables, estimated the number of seeds in the cucumber and then counted them, and then they tasted all of their healthy treats. For many of our children this was their first opportunity to experience fresh fruits and vegetables. This amazing learning opportunity was impactful beyond¬† the classroom. Our teachers and students discussed the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables every day. The children were able to take their yummy treats home to share with their families. Soar in 4 is thankful for the opportunity to explore, share and learning together with fresh, healthy food.
