The City of Dubrovnik continues to implement the "School Fruit Scheme" program in all six city schools this school year. Specifically, children in grades 1st to 8th in primary schools in the urban area will receive fruit meals once a week. This was made possible through a program implemented at European Union level, for which the City of Dubrovnik applied.
The Agency for Payments in Agriculture, Fish and Rural Development responded positively to the request submitted by the City of Dubrovnik and approved the requested funds. The total amount of money for the 2019-2020 school year.amounts to 121,346 Kuna excluding VAT, and applies to 3,569 students. The consumation of the fruit begins next week, after signing the contract with the selected supplier.
