Child Nutrition Services - Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program

The Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program that provides FREE, FRESH fruits & vegetables to students in elementary schools which are selected by the government through an application process each year.  

Goals of the FFVP:
  • Create healthy eating habits that will impact children's overall health.
  • Increase children's fruit and vegetable intake.
  • Introduce children to fruits and vegetables that they normally would not be exposed to such as kiwi, blackberries, red bananas, snap peas, English cucumbers, grape tomatoes, etc. 
  • Provide nutrition education to expand children's knowledge of fruits and vegetables.
