Apio Inc., Guadalupe, Calif., ships to school districts snack-sized packages of fresh vegetables through its “Get Veggie-cated” program.

The program began in April, said Cali Tanguay, director of marketing and technology. As of July, one Santa Maria, Calif., district was participating, but Apio offers the products throughout the state.

Six snack varieties are available in 2-ounce packages, including blends of celery and carrots, carrots and snap peas, and broccoli and carrots.
