The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federal grant program that provides fresh fruit or vegetable snacks to students in the classroom at qualifying K-5 and K-8 schools. It’s a great way to get students excited about eating healthy and trying new fruits & vegetables. 
 
Twenty five schools in MPS are participating in the 2022-23 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. MPS Culinary & Wellness Services serves fresh fruit and vegetable snacks to students at participating schools Tuesday-Friday. Each month, the FFVP menu features a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to provide students the opportunity to try and learn about new foods.

December FFVP Menu (click here or on the menu below)

With the cold weather upon us and the increased levels of respiratory illness in our communities, encourage your students to gobble up their fruits and veggies for an extra boost of vitamin C to help their immune systems. Raw fruits and vegetables are the best source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize harmful free radicals that cause damage to cells. Our December FFVP menu features striking candy cane beets and Pinkglow® Pineapple alongside uniquely shaped star fruit and Romanesco. Learn more about these new items on the backside of your menu!
