USDA Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides all enrolled students in participating elementary schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day—separate from the lunch or breakfast meal in one or more areas of the school. The program’s main goal is to create a healthier school environment by expanding students’ access to a variety of produce, increasing produce consumption, and promoting healthy food choices.

All elementary schools with a free and reduced-price percentage of 50% or more, based on the previous year's Area Eligibility Report, are encouraged to apply. The FFVP application will be completed using the Washington Integrated Nutrition System (WINS). View the Applying for FFVP Using WINS Recorded Training to get your application started today!
An Example Time and Effort Form can be used to track employee hours spent in the FFVP.
