Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program
The elementary school your child attends has been selected to participate in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for the 2023 school year. The FFVP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Minnesota Department of Education. A free fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be provided for students approximately 3 times per week. Snacks are generally served mid-morning or afternoon. The FFVP is an excellent way to enhance other wellness programs in the school that promote health, nutrition, and physical activity. The main goal of the FFVP is to increase the fruit and vegetable consumption of elementary school children. In addition to providing fresh fruits and vegetables, another goal of this program is to provide nutrition education to the children. Please continue to talk with your child about the healthy choices they receive at school. If you have any questions about this program, please contact Crystal in the Kitchen.
