 FFVP = FRESHFRUIT & VEGGIE PROGRAM
Elementary Schools with a high percentage of children eligible for free and reduced price meals may be eligible to participate in the "Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program".   The FFVP provides a fresh fruit or vegetable "sample" for students to try during the school day.
Potential Benefits of the FFVP:
  • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
  • Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption
  • Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health
  • This program is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. The FFVP introduces school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample.
