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 seven MPS schools participated in the 2021-2022 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.
 
FFVP will be starting again on October 25th, 2022. Future menus and newsletters will be viewable on this page.

Additional Educational Resources

Education is an important part of the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP) and snacks can be easily connected to everyday classroom lessons to enhance student learning!
