Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables as a snack during the school day. It’s an effective and creative way of introducing children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample, while also encouraging them to consider fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options.

The FFVP’s goals are three-fold:

  1. expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience,
  2. increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption, and
  3. positively impact children’s present and future health by helping them learn more healthful eating habits.

Participating schools receive grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, administered by the Oregon Department of Education, to reimburse the costs they incur making fresh fruits and vegetables available to students, at no charge to them, during the school day.
