Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP)

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program is one way to provide healthy food to elementary school children. The level of funds provided to any one school depends on the demographics of schools that are selected to participate in the program. Federal guidelines allow funding based on a range of $50 to $75.
