The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, (FFVP), will begin in August, around the 2nd full week of school. We were awarded money for August and September and are in the process are reapplying for the 2017-2018 School Year.
This program is being made available to our students through a grant from the USDA. It is an effective and fun way to introduce fruits and vegetables to our students outside of the breakfast and lunch programs and to items that they may not have access to at home. Everyday the students will have a fruit or a vegetable to try. On our WSUN news program, the students will have daily nutrition education about the fruit or vegetable of the day. When you child gets home from school, ask him/her what new fruit or vegetable they had that day and if they liked it. If they did, make sure to pick some up the next time you're at the store! Please see the monthly menu so you can see what will be served. The menu is subject to change due to availability or ripeness upon delivery at school.
