Many children aren’t exposed to fruits and vegetables. Purple Asparagus is changing all that by bringing nutrition to the classroom. Novice volunteers are able to assist with the programs. Committed volunteers can graduate into running a full program themselves. It’s a win win for both the children and volunteers. Dawn won by educating Belding Elementary about beans, peas and legumes.
