Courtesy Eastern Produce CouncilSchool, Eastern Produce Council and New Jersey state officials were on hand for the donation of a salad bar by the council to the Memorial School in Union Beach, New Jersey. The Eastern Produce Council has donated salad bars to two New Jersey schools.
Joseph Bolger Middle School in Keansburg and the Memorial School in Union Beach are the recipients, according to a news release from the Short Hills, N.J.-based council.
Both schools were damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012. Joseph Bolger has 440 students in grades five through eight, and Memorial has 650 students in grades pre-K through eight.
Officials at both schools say fruit and vegetable consumption is up considerably since the installation of the salad bars.
