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 combat childhood obesity by helping students learn more about healthful eating habits.

The USDA administers the program at the federal level, and OSPI administers the program at the state level. Participating schools receive reimbursement of the cost of offering free fresh fruits and vegetables to students throughout the school day. In school year 2013–2014, $3.3 million was distributed to Washington schools participating in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.
