Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program 2017-2018

Below is the list of 247 schools in 36 school food authorities (SFAs) that were selected to receive the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) funding for the 2017-2018 school year.

The purpose of the FFVP is to provide fresh fruits and vegetables free of charge, to all enrolled students every day. Awards were given to applicants in elementary schools, prekindergarten through grade 6 only, with the highest percentages of students certified for free and reduced price benefits until all funds were expended. We anticipate accommodating over 115,000 students with fresh fruits and vegetables daily throughout the school year.
