FRESH FRUIT & VEGETABLE PROGRAM (FFVP) AT CARNEGIE ELEMENTARY

The United States Department of Agriculture Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides students with a fresh fruit or vegetable snack at school during the school day to increase their consumption of healthy foods, exposure to a variety of fruits and vegetables and promote a healthier school environment. The 2008 Farm Bill expanded the program which was previously only available to 25 schools in Pennsylvania. The number of schools selected each year is based upon federal funding. Participation is limited to elementary schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program with free and reduced eligibility rates at or above 50%. The FFVP is administered at the state level by The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), the same agency that administers the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). 

Three times per week, students at Carnegie Elementary receive fruits or vegetables during the school day outside of the normal meal service (breakfast and lunch). The FFVP allows children to try new fruits and vegetables and teaches them the importance of a healthy diet.
