USDA Department of Defense (DoD) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program


As part of an initiative by USDA to offer schools a wider variety of fresh produce the USDA Department of Defense (DoD) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Produce Program was created.


The USDA DoD Fresh Produce Program allows sponsors the option to allocate a portion of their FDP entitlement towards fresh produce. Sponsors place produce orders in FFAVORS Web (Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Order Receipt System). DoD contracts with a Prime Vendor to deliver the produce in Oregon. The vendor creates a catalog of items available with pricing. Only domestic produce (US grown) may be purchased from the items listed in the catalog. One of the primary benefits of the program is that the procurement is done for the sponsor.
So what does this program cost me? The FFAVORS system draws down the cost of the produce orders and reflects your entitlement balance that you set-aside for the program. ODE charges a small per pound fee of $.025 to cover state administrative costs
Sponsors wanting to participate in the DoD Fresh fruit and Vegetables program may submit requests to the ODE USDA Food Distribution program at
Duck Delivery currently services the entire State of Oregon.
