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! 

FFVP: May 2019

FFVP Education 

Make FFVP snack time count with just a few minutes of classroom time! Promote healthy and adventurous eating habits, encourage students to think critically about food (beyond whether they LIKE or DISLIKE it) and learn together about the fruits or vegetables that you’re eating.
