The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is part of an initiative by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to offer elementary schools a wider variety of fresh produce than what is available through regular USDA Child Nutrition Programs, such as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

The goal is to create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices, expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, increasing children's fruit and vegetable consumption, and making a difference in children's diets to impact their present and future health.

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
Idaho elementary schools may apply for a competitive grant to administer USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP). Grant applications are released in the spring for funding to use in the next school year.
