Fruity idea has huge a’peel

WHAT do a school fruit box program, a community hall renovation, a sustainable heating project, a student ‘work ready’ program and a new dishwasher all have in common? They’re among the recipients of Hydro Tasmania’s latest round of grant funding, with more than $50,000 going to worthy organisations.

Hydro Tasmania was delighted to join the Jordan River Service Inc – Gagebrook Community Centre to celebrate their $4500 funding boost. This will expand the schools’ breakfast program to include weekly fresh fruit boxes for five local schools and over 1000 students. Thanks to Jordan River Learning Federation Herdsmans Cove Primary School for acting as hosts.

The school fruit program at Jordan River Learning Federation Herdsmans Cove Primary School is much welcomed by students.

The school students were very articulate on WIN Television during interviews when asked about how much they enjoy eating fruit during their school day. Good work, students. You have made your community proud.
