Bristol Township’s Keystone Elementary School awarded FFVP grant

BRISTOL, Aug. 16 – A grant to help encourage healthy eating habits was awarded to Keystone Elementary School, state Rep. Tina Davis, D-Bucks, and Gov. Josh Shapiro announced.

Keystone Elementary School, located in the Croydon section of Bristol Township, will receive $68,832 from the federal Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.

Under the program’s guidelines, the funds will be used to provide students with fresh fruits and vegetables separately from the lunch or breakfast meal in one or more areas of the school during the school day.

“It is important to start kids eating healthy at an early age,” Davis said. “This grant helps Keystone Elementary School do just that.”
