Herkimer County HealthNet Delivers Fruit & Vegetable Sectionizers to Herkimer County School Districts
June 13, 2011
HERKIMER – Last week, Herkimer County HealthNet delivered commercial grade, fruit and vegetable sectionizers to Herkimer County School District Cafeterias as part of a rural health development grant from the New York State Department of Health.
Thomas Curnow, Executive Director of Herkimer County HealthNet said, “The fruit and vegetable sectionizers work well in high-volume food service atmospheres like school district cafeterias.” Hutchinson also said that they are safer to use than utility knives for cutting fruits and vegetables and saves time for cafeteria staff while preparing healthy food alternatives to students.
Cafeteria managers stated that sectioned (as opposed to whole) fruits and vegetables are more attractive to students.
Herkimer County HealthNet’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of individuals who live, work, play, and learn in Herkimer County.
