Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federal grant program that provides a fresh fruit or vegetable snack to all students in qualifying K-8 schools. It’s a great way to get students excited about eating healthy and trying new fruits & vegetables. Learn more
Twenty-four MPS schools participate in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (see right for list of schools). Each month, FFVP snacks include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, including Farm to School produce and interesting/uncommon items that may be new to students!
