Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
Our school is a participant in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP). This program is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in participating elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health. The FFVP will help schools create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices; expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience; and increasing children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.
Students will get to sample two different items per week. So when your child comes home from school, don't forget to ask which new fruit or veggie they got to taste!
**Please notify your child's teacher if he/she has any fruit/vegetable allergies.
