One in a Melon, for a Melon and One Reasons
SVVSD, we’ve always said we love you berry much. In fact, we’re bananas for you, and we especially love the careful and inspired way Nutrition Services prioritizes local, fresh, healthy foods. And, we’re far from the only ones who think you're doing a grape job. Congrats on being honored as the Colorado recipient for the USDA “One in a Melon” award!
