The City of Dubrovnik is continuing this school year with the implementation of the "School Fruit Scheme" program in all seven city schools. Namely, children from 1st to 8th grade in primary schools in the city area will receive fruit meals once a week. This was made possible through a program implemented at the level of the European Union and for which the City of Dubrovnik also applied.
The Agency for Payments in Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development responded positively to the submitted request of the City of Dubrovnik and approved the requested funds. The total amount of entitlement to support for the school year 2020/2021 amounts to 144,355 Kuna without VAT, and refers to 3,599 students. The distribution of fruit begins next week, after signing contracts with selected suppliers.
