Attached is the list of 267 schools in 38 school food authorities (SFAs) that were selected to receive the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) Grants for the 2016-2017 school year.

The purpose of the FFVP is to provide fresh fruits and vegetables free of charge, to all enrolled students every day. Grants 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 fully expended. We anticipate accommodating over 122,500 children with fresh fruits and vegetables daily throughout the school year.
