The goal of Market Basket of the Month is to bring together the school cafeteria, classroom, home and community through a strategic effort to promote healthy habits for students. Objectives include increasing student:
- Knowledge of, familiarity with and preference for a variety of fruits and vegetables
- Participation in daily physical activity
Market Basket of the Month features a different fruit or vegetable each month. Participating schools include the selected produce on the school cafeteria menu. The schools also use a variety of program resources to give students hands-on opportunities to explore, taste and learn about the importance of eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and being active every day. Visit Wellspan's website for more information.
York County Students nominate their favorite teacher for our Teacher of the Month contest. A winner is drawn randomly from all entries each month. Then we surprise the winning teacher in the classroom with a Brown's gift basket as well as apples to share with students. To nominate your teacher email us your name, your teacher's name, your school and one sentence to tell us why your teacher is great.
Below is a list of our nominees from the 2012-2013 school year.
