The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted grant program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day to students participating in eligible schools. To be eligible for the program, the school must have a free and reduced rate of at least 50%; they must be an elementary school (grades PreK through 6th); they must agree to serve the fresh fruits or vegetables outside of any other child nutrition program (School Lunch, Breakfast, or Afterschool Snack Program); and they must complete an annual application.
The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health.
