Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program
Starting this Wednesday, September 23rd, our food service will be providing our Mana families with fresh fruit and vegetables when you pick up meals for your scholars.
From the USDA FFVP page:
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to children at eligible elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to introduce children to fresh fruits and vegetables, to include new and different varieties, and to increase overall acceptance and consumption of fresh, unprocessed produce among children. The FFVP also encourages healthier school environments by promoting nutrition education.
