Districts with one or more elementary schools with 50% or more free and reduced priced eligible students are encouraged to participate in the United States Department of Agriculture Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for SY 2019-20. The purpose of this program is to increase and expand fruit and vegetable consumption to students in elementary schools beyond the reimbursable meal program including the breakfast, lunch and after school snack programs.

Eligible districts were recently notified of their eligibility. Application documents are now available for download. All application packets must be mailed and received by the close of business on Thursday, May 16, 2019.

Please Note: The selection process will only be completed, if the Commonwealth receives funding to support the program.
